Principal Nitsche

Dear Families and Guests,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the St. Cajetan School website, and to be serving as Principal of this outstanding elementary school.

For our current families, this site provides many valuable resources, including access to PowerSchool, links to classroom websites, and a calendar listing important dates and events. For our prospective families, it’s a chance to get a glimpse of who we are as a community and discover all that St. Cajetan has to offer.

We are a community based in the Catholic faith, and that faith is infused into the daily culture of our classrooms. Our school features innovative technology, a rigorous curriculum aligned to the Common Core, and extracurricular activities ranging from athletics and technology to service and the arts. We are blessed with a supportive community of families and parishioners, and are privileged to have a committed staff of educational professionals, many of whom hold Master’s degrees in their field.

St. Cajetan School does not teach textbooks. We teach children.

We understand that there are differences in the way students learn, so we use various strategies to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. In addition to strong academic standards, we are committed to  educating “the whole child”, which means meeting our students’ social and emotional needs and working to shape new generations of compassionate, ethical leaders.

I thank you for visiting our website and invite those considering St. Cajetan to come see us in person any time. To set up a personal tour, call our school office at (773) 474-7820 or email us at


Mrs. Michelle Nitsche
