History of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School
In the early 90's, Monsignor Paul Procella, then pastor of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church and Community, had a vision and hope for the future. Monsignor Paul's vision included an environment where the children from the Lake Houston area could attend a school in a Christ like environment, where excellence and high standards would be achieved with discipline and honor. He hoped for a place filled with love where children could gain moral values as well as excel to their academic potential.
With the dedication and support of the entire St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Community, St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School opened its doors on August 15, 2001 wth an enrollment of seventy- one students in grades Pre-K through 3rd grades under the supervision of Monsignor Paul and Principal Jean Johnson. Each year, for the next five years, the school added an addional grade level offering Catholic Education to students in Pre-K3 through 8th grade by 2006.
With an average enrollment is 325 students, St. Mary Magdalene is the perfect sized school, enabling us to offer a wide variety of classes, Middle School electives, after school clubs, extra-curricular activites, academic competitions and athletic opportunities to our students, yet small enough to maintain a close and intimate community.
St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Community is a large parish serving over 4,500 families and provides our school families with extensive resources and opportunities for involvement.
