Reverend George A. Brown Memorial School, a Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Paterson, offers programs for children in pre kindergarten to grade 8. The first Catholic school in Sussex County which opened its doors in 1954 was named for the first pastor and was staffed by the Benedictine Sisters. Today, a lay staff carries on the Benedictine charisma, spirit, and tradition.
 
Our mission is to educate children for participation in today's world. We strive to assist our students to keep the light of Christ in their lives by expanding their faith and love of God. We encourage students to assimilate Christian values and standards, so their lives will be rooted in peace, responsibility, justice, and fairness as they take their place in society. We commit ourselves to supporting the role of parents in their tasks of leading children to God. We also commit ourselves to providing a well-rounded, balanced, educational program in classrooms where children learn through discovery, effective thought-processes and life experiences. In this learning environment, we commit our human and material resources for our students to reach their fullest potential by realizing their God-given talents and gifts.
