General School Mission

"As a Catholic elementary school, Saint Aloysius creates a Christian environment through prayer, service and academic excellence. Based on the teachings of Christ and His Church, we are dedicated to form, inform and transform our school community.
We encourage our school and our parish families to unite in our mission to assist our children in their faith journey, to help them achieve a personal relationship with God, and to become active disciples by sharing the Good News contained in the Gospel.
Academically, we invite our students to become enthusiastic learners by immersing them in various styles of learning. Understanding that children bring their God-given talents to the classrooms, we pose the question "How are you smart?" not "How smart are you?" We achieve this by providing a curriculum that promotes hands-on experiences, creative and critical thinking skills, independent and cooperative learning, and development of self-esteem.
Through a non-threatening environment, we strive to build a lifelong commitment to learning in an ever-changing society. In order to prepare them for situations outside of the classroom, the students will "learn how to learn" by practicing responsibility, respect and tolerance through their words and actions.
In cooperation of our effort, the administration, faculty and support staff of Saint Aloysius believe in the unique intelligence of every child. Recognizing we are all learners on a lifelong journey, we commit ourselves to the growth, success, and Christian happiness of all whose lives we touch.
