Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that Jesus has sent His Spirit to be with us always to guide, direct, and energize the love of God in us. We trust and rely on God's gifts to each one in our school family--parents, teacher, and students.

We believe that the Parents have the primary responsibility in the education of their child. It is they who set the attitudes and values and give real meaning to Christian education in the schools. After the parents have freely entrusted their child to the Catholic school, it is their right and duty to assist the school by their cooperation and support according to their ability.

We believe that the Child, a unique individual, has definite basic relationships to God, to his others, to nature, and to self. Through this interaction with people, ideas, and things in the total school environment, the child's potential--spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical- is developed and strengthened.

We believe that the Faith Community-the Church- has the responsibility of assisting the parents in carrying out their duty of the Christian education of the child. We believe, also, that the Catholic school is the most effective means available to the Church in its educational ministry to the children and young people.
