Soaring With The Eagles...

Saint Matthew’s School has been educating students in Hampton Roads since 1963. Our school helps all children reach their God-given potential. At St. Matthew's technology meets tradition in the classroom, where age-old, proven teaching techniques are combined with new methods that engage children of all different learning styles. Gifted students, above-average students, average students and children with learning challenges all thrive in our school’s loving, though disciplined, learning environment.
