    • Welcome to Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School
      Welcome to Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School was founded in 1949 by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.  Today, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word partner with St. Mary Miraculous Medal Catholic Church to continue the operation of Our Lady of Fatima School. We are second oldest Catholic school in Galveston County.  Our Lady of Fatima offers a comprehensive educational program for pre-school through 8th grade. The school operates under the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and is accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department.

      Our Lady of Fatima remains committed to educating the students in spiritual values and honors the dignity and uniqueness of each student. We focus on providing a Catholic education in a warm and nurturing Christ-centered environment. Our Pre-K 3 through Kindergarten program offers an excellent Montessori-based curriculum while grades 1-8 provide accelerated and traditional instructional programs. The students participate in Spanish, music, physical education, art, and technology. The students learn about sharing God’s love through service to the community, and learning about learning in a safe, and nurturing environment embedded in Catholic identity and academic excellence in the heart of Texas City.

      We want you to explore our web site and see and feel our vision and mission where Catholic and Non-Catholic students, learn, play, and grow!

    • Catholic Schools Week, 2015


      The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2015 is January 25 to January 31.

      The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities—small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation. Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged.

      The logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
