General School Mission

"School Philosophy:
We, the faculty of St. Stanislaus Kostka School, believe the distinctive purpose of the Catholic school is to celebrate, integrate, and promote the multiculturalism that is representative of the parish and extended community. Here, our faith can freely and lovingly be shared.

As Christian Educators we believe we are responsible to pray and celebrate Liturgy that is reflective of the diversity of our students' traditions. We believe that each person is created uniquely with special gifts and limitations. Therefore, we accept the individual and challenge each student to grow spirtually, cognitively, emotionally and socially.

We believe that our constant pursuit of academic excellence begins with the love of self. Therefore, we design instructional modes that free each studetn to develop his/her fullest potential.

We believe that since parents are the primary educators of their children; there must be trust and support between home and school for the continued growth and success of all."

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

"Parents are the primary educators of their children. Parents who choose to enroll their child in St. Stanislaus Kostka School must be knowledgeable and supportive of school programs, policies, and regulations outlined for the educational welfare of the students. We work together to realize each child’s potential.

In addition to a fine faculty and a well-planned curriculum, we believe that St. Stanislaus Kostka School offers a unique gift and challenge in the opportunity it offers to share in the richness of various cultures. It is our hope that you, as parents, will share that gift and assist us in meeting that challenge.

God bless us all and guide us with His Spirit as we endeavor to live the Good News and keep it alive and growing in the hearts of our children".
