Welcome to St. William of York Catholic School! We are a preschool through eighth grade parish school in the Arlington Diocese, located in historic Stafford, Virginia, where America’s first Catholics settled and President George Washington spent his childhood.
We invite you to come and see why our bishop calls Catholic education “the greatest gift parents can give their children” and why our pastor calls his school the “jewel of the parish.” Our inspiring teachers and dedicated staff are ready to welcome your family and work with you in providing your children with a solid, integral Catholic formation, a time-tested foundation for a truly happy and fruitful life here and eternal happiness hereafter.
Our wonderful school parents are ready to help you feel at home as welcome members of a vibrant, joyful school family, a community life rooted in Gospel charity, an authentic Catholic culture that has created a warm unity between our school and parish families. Our close proximity to the Quantico Marine Corps Base facilitates that special bond we admire in our numerous military families.
We hope you enjoy perusing our website for a glimpse of who we are and how we go about our mission of genuine Catholic education, a mission rooted in sound Catholic philosophy that shapes both our academic content and our methods of teaching primary, elementary, and middle school children. We hope our website moves you to embrace with us the rich heritage of the Catholic educational tradition and see St. William of York Catholic School as the school of choice for your kids. God bless.
