Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"WE BELIEVE…that every child has been gifted with dignity and possesses the inherent right to individual growth. WE BELIEVE…that the parents have the first and foremost responsibility in the education of the child. It is through the family that God's love and care takes root in the heart of the child.WE BELIEVE…that the academic program should be founded on commitment to excellence as we work to stimulate the spirit of inquiry, the acquisition of knowledge and nderstanding, and the thoughtful formulation of worthy goals.WE BELIEVE…that the integration of Catholic truths and values with the rest of life and learning is the distinguishing mark of the Catholic school.WE BELIEVE…that the school community is an integral part of the wider community it serves, and a vital force for preparing future civic and social leaders.WE BELIEVE…that the right to manage our schools resides in the collaborative efforts of the parents, the pastors, and the school personnel.WE BELIEVE…that the processing skills that we teach our students will prepare them for a quality future. WE BELIEVE…that the students must know how to activate and develop their inner resources.
WE BELIEVE…that quality education in Catholic schools directly influences our church,our country, and our world. Through the strength and courage of the Spirit we are led to worship God and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ."
