Welcome to St. Clement School!

Discover the Difference Excellence Makes!




Message from Fr. E.J. Stein OFM, Pastor:

    I am happy to announce we have selected a new Principal

for St. Clement School! We congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Eiser for 11 years of exceptional service and dedication to our students and school. Mr. Eiser has personally known our new Principal for over 20 years and believes she will do well at St. Clement School! Our new Principal, Mrs. Nicole Brainard, officially begins on July 1, 2021. However, I am pretty sure 

she and Mr. Eiser will be working together during this transition phase even before that date. When you meet her you will quickly understand she is very excited and happy to be coming to St. Clement School. 

    Mrs. Brainard has an abundance of Catholic School and educational administration experience and abilities. She has abundant energy. Mrs. Brainard is quite personable and easy 

to talk with. She and her family are solidly Catholic people and are committed to Catholic education.

    Mrs. Brainard is a graduate of McAuley High School and John Carroll University in Cleveland, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology.  At Xavier University here in Cincinnati, Mrs. Brainard received a Master of Arts in Educational Administration. Mrs. Brainard served four years as Principal of Archbishop Alter High School in Dayton, Ohio; two years as Principal of McAuley High School in Cincinnati; five years as Principal of St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Cincinnati; and

three years as Science Teacher at DePaul Cristo Rey High School in Cincinnati. 

    Mrs. Brainard enjoys a high degree of respect and good reputation in the education circles of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Welcome to St. Clement!

Mr. and Mrs. Eiser's Retirement Video

We wanted to thank each and every one of you for your support and friendship over the last 11 years. These years have truly been a life changing experience for Mrs. Eiser and I as we worked to do "God's Will".  We are both excited about the future of St. Clement School and honored and humbled to have been a part of the school's wonderful 171 year history serving children. With the help of our wonderful and talented staff we have overcome many hurdles and challenges over the last 11 years....and the future looks strong for our school. 

We leave knowing we gave every ounce of energy and heart that we had, and are looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us in the future. We wish everyone who reads this message nothing but the very best in the future. 

Remember the words of our patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi, when he said to his brothers "Preach the gospel at all times, and when necessary use words!".

Be safe and God Bless all of you.


Mr. and Mrs. Eiser
