About Our School

Ss. Cosmas & Damian School is a Preschool through Sixth Grade elementary school in Punxsutawney. Our campus includes Ss. Cosmas & Damian School, the Parish Rectory, and the Parish Church. We offer a “traditional” faith-based education with an engaging and challenging curriculum that is aligned to state and national standards. We are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Ss. Cosmas & Damian School lays the groundwork for your child’s faith-based education. Students enrolled in our school are afforded the opportunity to attend our 3-year-old or 4-year-old Preschool program. Our Kindergarten experience features a full-day program to accommodate working families while preparing them for a smooth transition to First grade. Our elementary school, Grades 1 – 6, not only utilizes the Diocesan curriculum, we also pride ourselves in tradition, the teaching of values, and the formation of the “whole” student. At Ss. Cosmas & Damian, our motto is “Education through Faith”. We care that our students grow spiritually, physically, and intellectually.
