Advisory School Board

The St. Cyril of Alexandria Advisory School Board is a caring community of members who believe they are to integrate “faith into life and life into faith” for our children, families and the greater St. Cyril community.

Supporting the administration, faculty and staff and serving as liaisons between all facets of the parish and school communities


Preserving and promoting Catholic values


Supporting the School Mission


Insuring a nurturing and safe environment for the children


Insuring the financial stability of the school


Surrendering themselves and offering their expertise in service for the common good
