Infant of Prague Catholic School embraces the mission of Jesus Christ. We are committed to preparing our students to live as stewards of God’s creation by providing a Christ-centered Catholic education, integrating sound Christian principles of faith, service, and leadership with strong academic programs focused on the development of the whole student.


In addition to a full curriculum of religious education, IOPCS begins each school day with prayer to keep us mindful of God’s presence in our lives. Classes rotate responsibility for presenting weekly all school Masses. Our students pray a weekly rosary in October and May and participate in the Stations of the Cross during Lent.


Infant of Prague Catholic School guides children from Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade to greatness in faith, education and community. Beginning in Pre-K, IOPCS prepares each student for success with a rigorous academic program and provides each student with the tools needed to succeed in school and beyond.
