Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our objective is to reach out to all who come to us and promote their growth spiritually, academically, socially and physically. We are a faith community. We seek to establish a partnership leading to excellence involving the faculty, staff, students, parents and parishes of each of our schools. We believe that students are individuals with different learning styles, abilities and levels of motivation. As a community, we endeavor to help each student fulfill his/her potential.
We believe that each student bears the ultimate responsibility for their own achievements. As a Catholic school, we encourage our students to accept their responsibilities. Therefore, to facilitate learning, students should master the basic skills of any given subject area. We believe all students are capable of mastering a core curriculum of basic contents and skills. As such mastery is demonstrated, the Catholic school faculty will provide a learning environment, which promotes independent and critical involvement with the subject matter.
