We Are Now Community of Saints Regional Catholic School!
Quality Preschool through 8th Grade Catholic Education
In 2012, St. Matthew's joined with the parishes of Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. John Vianney, and St. Michael to create a new pre-K to 8th grade school. Community of Saints Regional School is located in West St. Paul on the former St. Michael Parish campus (see address below).
We serve families who live in:
- West Side of Saint Paul
- West St. Paul
- South St. Paul
- Mendota Heights

Through the generosity of the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, we are offering tuition and referral credits for the 2015-2016 school year. We’ve been blessed with a $50,000 matching grant for tuition assistance from the Schulze Family Foundation and have set an enrollment target of 175 students. Community of Saints offers a high-quality Catholic education in a small school environment. Help us spread the word about our school
We have these great credits we have to offer:
$1,000 New Student Credit – any new K-8 student who enrolls in the 2015-2016 school year will receive a $1,000 credit. Additionally, need-based tuition assistance is available for all our families and these credits do not affect the amount of tuition assistance a family may receive.
20% Referral Credit – Current or new families who refer another family will receive a 20% tuition credit for the 2015-2016 school year if the family enrolls. Refer more than 1 family –receive an additional 10% for the 2015-2016 school year for each additional family. This credit does not affect the amount of need-based tuition assistance a family may receive. Referrals are credited per new family regardless of number of students in the family.

Our Diverse School Builds Future Leaders
COS has brought together the many traditions, values and cultures of the four parishes that are its sponsors. The result is a rich mix that truly reflects the diversity of the community ethnically and economically, as well as presenting different traditions within the Catholic faith. By engaging students in a multi-faceted and multi-cultural school environment, they learn to appreciate and value diversity and are better prepared to assume a leadership role in addressing the challenges of a diverse world community.
Community of Saints has hosted Reunion Sunday in recognition of the school alums of our sponsoring parishes.
An annual Community of Saints benefit usually occurs in May in the St. Matthew Social Hall from 6-10pm. We would love for you to join us at this fun event! Watch for an announcement.
Our 8th graders annually host a Taco Feed to raise money for their cultural experience field trip. The taco feed usually takes place on a Sunday in March from 2-7pm in the St. Matthew Social Hall. Keep your eyes open for the next Taco Feed!
