Soaring With The Eagles...

St. Matthew’s is honored to have been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for high achievement. Our diocesan school offers Pre-K3 through 8th grade.

Saint Matthew’s School has been educating students in Hampton Roads since 1963. Our school helps all children reach their God-given potential. At St. Matthew's technology meets tradition in the classroom, where age-old, proven teaching techniques are combined with new methods that engage children of all different learning styles. Gifted students, above-average students, average students and children with learning challenges all thrive in our school’s loving, though disciplined, learning environment. 


St. Matthew's Catholic School Vision: Empowering leaders one faith-filled day at a time.

St. Matthew's Catholic School Mission: St. Matthew's Catholic School provides a Christ-centered environment that forms a foundation of learning for all through spiritual, academic and physical education.

"Our son graduated from St. Matthew's with not only strong academic skills in organization, planning and work ethic but he also learned life skills ~ accountability, respect, and gracious manners.  This combination helped him make a smooth transition to high school where he has continued to excel based on the foundation provided by Saint Matthew's."
