Thirty-nine years ago, Reverend Kevin F. Duignan, pastor of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, listened to the parish consensus of building a school and moved forward on the venture. The school doors were opened on August 30th, 1976, with just one class — Kindergarten. The master plan called for Kindergarten to open the first year, and one grade to be added every year after that for the next eight years.
The Kindergarten was fully accredited by the State of Alabama Department of Education and had the full approval of the Catholic Department of Education. The first Kindergarten class had twenty-four students. The first Principal was Mrs. Barbara Boudreaux. Over the past thirty-nine years, a lot of changes have taken place at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School.
Today St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School has 11 classroom teachers (K3 through 8th Grade); a P. E. teacher; a Counselor; a Librarian / Computer Teacher; a Title I Reading Coach; a Band instructor; a Kindergarten Aide; a French teacher; the Parish Priest of St. Vincent de Paul, Father Vrazel teaches middle school religion; a Principal; an Assistant Principal; a school secretary / bookeeper; two cafeteria people; and a maintenance person. At present, the school enrollment is 123 students.
