Welcome to Saint
A Roman Catholic
School of the Diocese of Pittsburgh
As the mission of our patron, Saint Sylvester, was
to offer charity and hospitality to others,
the children of Saint Sylvester School are also encouraged to call
upon the fruits
of the Spirit to invoke charity, hospitality, love, and service
Each child is seen as a precious gift, unique in intelligence, talents
and strengths; deserving of love, sympathy, and guidance.
Our mission is to recognize and nurture the unique potential of
each child and actively live the Christian faith.
We believe that:
Children learn and grow in God's love through faith and education.
Teachers provide the structure for a positive learning environment
that allows students to grow spiritually, emotionally, socially,
Teachers are to be living examples of the Catholic faith.
Teachers inspire students to love learning and in the process foster
self-motivation, creativity, responsibility, and life long learning.
Children are unique individuals created by God and are respected
for their gifts and talents.
Parents are an integral part of the educational process.
Moral and social conscience formation is as important as academic
Our school provides a safe and secure environment for students and
Students take ownership of their part in the educational process.
Students respect themselves and the diversity of others as children
