School History and Tradition

St. Wilfrid Catholic School was founded in 1966 and named after Saint Wilfrid. Wilfrid, originally spelled Wilfrith, was born in England in 634 AD. Elected Abbott of Ripon in 658 and Bishop of York in 669, he introduced Roman rules and practices to northern England. Wilfrid worked passionately to open many monasteries of the Benedictine Order. He was an extremely hardworking and courageous person who remained firm in his beliefs regardless of what other authority figures wanted him to do. St. Wilfrid's feast day is celebrated on October 12.

Our school is widely known for the dedication of its teaching staff and parent community and its excellence throughout the years. The school motto portrays two hands clasped in shared friendship between adult and child, and our commitment to integrity, perseverance and excellence.
