About Us

St. Cecilia Catholic School was established in 1935 and has been a stable force in the Oak Cliff community for over 80 years. St. Cecilia Catholic School is located in the heart of the Bishop Arts District just minutes form downtown Dallas.  We strive to cultivate the intellect, provide a sense of values, and to ready the students for further education in an atmosphere of service to the community.  We offers classes from PreK3 through 8th grade.  Each morning, our day begins with a prayer service that ends with the Pledge of Allegiance.

At its heart Saint Cecilia School is a community in pursuit of the following goals:

  • Individual attention and Academic Excellence
  • Spiritual Growth where every individual discovers the importance of the Christian faith in their lives
  • Artistic and Physical Development where every individual is challenged and inspired
  • Emotional Support where every individual is valued and respected
With our Motto, To Serve as Jesus Did, students are reminded daily of the behavior expected of them.  With Jesus as our role model and guide, children are encourages to live and follow Christ's example of service.


The mission of Saint Cecilia Catholic School is to educate students in a strong Catholic, Christ-centered environment and to enable them to grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
