Costa Catholic Academy

Dear Galesburg Catholic Community Parents,

If you are a new family with your first child or are not currently enrolled as a student in our school, I want to personally invite all of you to consider partnering with our school in the formation and education of your child.

Costa Catholic Academy offers an authentic Catholic education of excellence, forming leaders for the future who are in love with the Person of Jesus Christ and eager to live lives of discipleship and service. Each week students attend Mass as a school. There is something powerful about gathering to pray and worship as a school community! Students attend special liturgies and prayer services for holy days of obligation, special feast days and other celebrations. 

We are the only school in the Galesburg area with Jesus Christ truly present in our school. With a school chapel immediately inside the front doors of the school, we believe a relationship with Jesus Christ is at the heart of our school’s mission, and it is my priority to work closely with our principal, Mrs. Frakes, and our teachers as we strive to educate your son and daughter with a Christ-like worldview. We strive daily to foster the formation of the whole child, spiritually, intellectually, morally, emotionally, and physically. This perspective is unique to a Catholic School.

Our rigorous and challenging curriculum is taught by our top-notch faculty who use cutting-edge technology to ensure students are prepared to meet their future. No matter the endeavor or vocation they choose to pursue, our students graduate with a strong work ethic, a desire to achieve excellence, and a faith-filled heart to serve. Your child is taught to use their many gifts for the glory of God, for their own true good, and for the authentic good of their neighbor. Our mission is to form well-rounded disciples who will become the future leaders of our Church, our communities, and our world.

Please feel free at any time to reach out to our principal Mrs. Julie Purl with any questions, interest in a tour, and information on scholarship opportunities. We want every child in our community to have the opportunity to attend Costa Catholic Academy!
