General School Mission

"St. Edward School is founded on the person of Jesus Christ and is enlivened by Gospel values. We believe in demonstrating a special concern the uniqueness of each person by emphasizing education in searching for personal meaning. St. Edward School highlights the relevance of our faith to life and contemporary culture. We believe in expressing a distinctly Catholic view on issues in society by offering a curriculum that is relevant to individual students and which helps them find meaning in their own life experiences. Our school is embedded within the community of believers and shares in the mission of the Church. We believe that each group must share and accept the responsibility of communicating with one another in order to gain the mutual respect within the total faith community. We are committed to the development of the school, the faith community, and are part of the local Church, community, and Diocese of Peoria. We are committed to the development of the whole person. We believe in providing experiences designed to foster the growth of the whole person - spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. These ideals may only be accomplished through a spirit of cooperation shared among the following groups: school family, school staff, parents, and students. The school working with the parents provides the students the opportunity to grow in their faith and scholarship through a quality curriculum."
