From Saint Matthew Catholic School

Saint Matthew School was founded in 2001 and is home to 445 students in Pre-K though 8. The motto of our school: Seeking Knowledge, Modeling Christ, and Serving Others is the guiding force behind every aspect of daily life at our school. The high standards of Christian character, conduct, and service are developed as students embrace our motto. We welcome students of all faiths and our teachings contribute to the character development of all our students.

In fall 2017, Saint Matthew was named a Blue Ribbon School. The following year, in 2018, SMS launched our inclusive education program, opening our doors to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our students supplement their academic endeavors with the opportunity to participate in our competitive sports teams, and co-curriculars including Science Olympiad, Mathletes, Model UN, and Drama/Forensics.

    Saint Matthew Catholic School Reviews

    We moved our children to Saint Matthew School in 5th and 6th grade from out of state. What a welcoming community we found in SMS. Our children thrived, despite moving at a difficult age. They live out their motto of Seeking, Modeling and Serving in their daily school routines. Saint Matthew School is the only Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade private, catholic school in Williamson county, however that is not what makes it stand out. Receiving the 2017 National Blue Ribbon Award does! Just walk through the doors and you will feel the difference.

    We have one child in st Matthew and one starting pre-K next year also at st Matthew. After being in the Catholic Nashville community for close to 40 years and both my husband and I going to catholic schools for our whole adolescence St Matthew is above and beyond. The warmth, love and support behind those doors is immeasurable. There would not be a better choice for our family and so happy we made the right choice. The staff is always helpful, nice and loving. We have loved every teacher thus far. Thank you st m!!! Go lions!
    This is the most supportive environment for a child’s development. There is a palpable positive energy coursing through the halls of SMS. St Matthew has a commitment to technology and progressive learning and encourages the formation of a reflective, kind, empathetic child.
