Little Flower Catholic School – Now Enrolling 2021-2022 School Year
March 26, 2021

Little Flower Catholic School is proud to continue offering a Catholic education according to the new "Micro School" model!

The micro school model can be tailored to the individual student and draws from the strengths of other models of education, such as home schooling co-ops and the old "one-room schoolhouses" of history. Over the past few years, Little Flower Catholic School has already been adopting this model in some ways. Based on the successes of our previous multilevel classroom experiences, we are moving forward along these lines.

Applications for PK3 to 8th grade are now being accepted.

Or call the Little Flower School Office
