Principal’s Welcome

Dear St. Martin of Tours School Families,

Thank you for enrolling your child to be a part of the  St. Martin of Tours Catholic School family! We know that there are so many factors that go into the important decision of selecting a school for your child – environment, academics, before and after school programs, financial aid – the list goes on, and we want to thank you for choosing to entrust your child/ren to our school.

At St. Martin of Tours, your child will receive an outstanding education that prepares him or her for high school and beyond in a safe environment where they will grow academically, emotionally, morally and spiritually.

Did you know?

  • St. Martin of Tours has been educating children for over 95 years
  • We have chromebooks or ipads in each classroom in our Middle School and for each grade in our PreK-4th grade.  We also have a fully functional STEAM lab.
  • This year, our school adopted a new, rigorous, Common Core-aligned Math program, Eureka! Math.
  • We have a large population of diverse learners who are mainstreamed into our General Education population and receive support from a Student Support Teacher.
  • We are part of an independent network of 15 Catholic schools located throughout Philadelphia
  • Our Catholic identity is central to everything we do. The entire school community participates in religious events including monthly Mass, the Living Rosary, the Christmas Pageant, and Stations of the Cross.
  • Each morning we gather as a school community to celebrate one another and recite the St. Martin of Tours Mission Statement: St. Martin of Tours Catholic School is committed to living the Gospel message of Jesus and nurtures each of our students to become lifelong learners in a global society by preparing our students to apply 21st century skills through leadership, stewardship, and service.

This spring, our students were busy showing what they know during MAP testing and have had a lot of fun celebrating their school. They also have the opportunity to participate in many after-school activities, including a school play, Girls on the Run, BOKS basketball for boys, Sea Perch robotics, and NovaCare engineering.

We can’t wait to welcome you and your child back to the St. Martin of Tours community this Fall and for you to continue to experience the St. Martin of Tours difference first-hand! In the meantime, we invite you to check out our website at https://stmartinoftoursphila.org/ and to follow us on Facebook @oxfordcirlcephiladelphia so you can see all the great stuff that’s in store for your child.

If you have any questions regarding your enrollment, please feel free to contact us anytime!

Sincerely,

Mr. Matthew Grill
