St. Laurentius School is known as "A Small Wonder," in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia! Celebrating more than 126 years and counting, our school is nestled in the residential neighborhood of Fishtown. St. Laurentius School serves children in Pre-K through 8th grade, as part of the Holy Name of Jesus parish, by providing a quality academic education while proclaiming the Catholic faith.

For two straight years in a row, we have proudly been named the #1 Elementary School in the Region in's Reader's Choice poll! We are always eager to provide opportunities for our children to grow in a safe, caring, and challenging environment that challenges them to become lifelong learners in a global society.

In 2017, St. Laurentius will be setting goals for how to provide each student with the technological tools they need to become better, more effective learners in the years to come. Over the next 5 years, we will embark on a plan to outfit our classrooms with iPads, completely upgrade our wireless infrastructure, and educate faculty and students on new learning apps and platforms. 

This year, we have been soliciting estimates for vendors and learning platforms, comparing rates and funding options, and working directly with the Technology Committee of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

We need your help to raise the seed funds required to start our technology upgrades--help our "Small Wonder" grow! Your donation will help St. Laurentius obtain our initial in-service app and digital curriculum training for our faculty, and help us assess the best places in our school to have charging stations, wifi hubs and more.  This is the first step towards making St. Laurentius a true technology-integrated school, and we can't do it without your support. 

St. Laurentius thanks you for helping to make us one of the top Catholic elementary schools in the region. We couldn't do it without the love and investment of our parish families and surrounding community.

Dear everyone. I am humbled by your response to this. Our school has gone to Google classroom where the teachers can post assignments and the students complete it and send it to the teacher. Saving the environment with less paper, too! Thank you!
