st-clare-school-admissionsOur school’s mission states: St. Clare School is a Catholic, parish-school community rooted in Gospel values and dedicated to the spiritual and educational development of the whole child.

It is with this hopeful, positive, and values-based approach, coupled with our academically-strong curriculum, that we have successfully nurtured and educated children every day for over 100 years, helping them to attain their true potential and become lifelong learners.

We invite all families who want to learn about what makes St. Clare such a special place to come visit us during our annual Open House in January, call our school at 503-244-7600 to schedule a tour and appointment with our principal, and/or visit our Request for Information page and the school office will contact you.
