General School Mission

"St. Sylvester School is a Catholic School that serves the parish community and is both an expression of and a witness to the faith of its people."

"The school's primary responsibility is in the area of Catholic Education-Preschool through Eighth Grade. The individual student is the school's primary concern as he or she develops spiritually, academically, morally, emotionally, socially, and physically as a unique free person."

"We believe that a child's development best occurs within the framework of a positive and structured environment. This is facilitated in a Christian atmosphere where mutual respect, order, and values are a high priority."

"We believe in high quality education and achieve this through innovative and progressive educational and after-school programs."

"We believes extracurricular activities facilitate the student's development and discovery of particular talents as well as their enjoyment of education."

"We believe Christian beliefs and values are the foundation of this development process."

"We believe that students must be taught to learn with increased responsibility given to each student."

"We believe that parent partnership is important to the implementation and success of learning."

"We believe that technology is an essential and integral part of student learning."

"We believe that student leadership, parent partnership, and teacher empowerment enhances learning and helps all realize they are valued and an essential part of the school community."
