Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"As educators in a Catholic school, we are called to proclaim and witness to the Gospel message. The Love of the Heart of Christ, as exemplified in the life of Clelia Merloni (our foundress), empowers us to respond to the challenges of the Church today. We commit ourselves to evangelization through the ministry of education and the creation of a supportive and challenging climate, which affirms the dignity of all persons within the school community.
