About us

Located in the heart of Fair Oaks, St. Mel Catholic School has been successfully educating students since 1959.

St. Mel School is proud to carry on the tradition of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy, to educate ‘the whole child” in an atmosphere of faith, service to others, and academic excellence.

St. Mel is a close-knit, diverse community united in faith. Our community of faculty, staff, parents, students, and parishioners are all dedicated to providing an education grounded in respect, understanding, integrity, faith, and tradition.
