A message from the principal:

I would like to welcome you to St. Bartholomew Catholic School.  St. Bartholomew School has a rich tradition of educating children grades K-8 in Bartholomew County and the city of Columbus for over a century and a half.  Our school is committed to providing a quality, faith-filled education. We are recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education as well as being classified as an Exemplary school by the Indiana Department of Education. 

Our students are challenged daily to reach and grow to become the best people they can be by being respectful, being responsible, being cooperative, being an active participant in class, and maintaining positive attitudes.  Our goal is that students will grow daily in their faith, academics, and service to others. St. Bartholomew students are part of a Catholic, Christian community where teachers, staff, and parents share the same values and beliefs. We strive to be an open and welcoming community with many ways for students and parents to become active, involved members of both our parish and school.

Our students are served by a faculty of 18 classroom teachers, a full-time instructional coach, 5 support faculty (including Art, Physical Education, Music, Library and Spanish), and 8 instructional assistants. We are also served by a full-time technology coordinator and a part-time nurse. Every member of our staff is dedicated to providing faithful witness, a caring classroom environment and rigorous, challenging instructional experiences for our students.

We have an amazing PTO which generously supports many of our school programs which provide enriching, educational opportunities for all of our students.  We also have an in-house athletic program which offers basketball for boys and girls, volleyball for girls, and cheerleading.  Our 7th and 8th grade students are also offered sports opportunities at the neighboring middle school, Northside Middle School, which include tennis, cross country, track, football, wrestling and golf.  Our students are also offered the opportunity to participate on academic teams such as Lego League, Spell Bowl and Geography Bee.


Please check out the information about St. Bartholomew School on our website.  If you wish more information or would like to schedule a visit with us to see first-hand the good things happening in our school, you may contact me directly at 812-372-6830 x223 or email at hheckman@stbirish.net.


Many blessings to you and your family!
