"Our school is an independent Catholic school. "Catholic schools strive to relate all human culture to the news of salvation, so that the light of faith will illumine the knowledge which students gradually gain of the world, of life, and of humankind." (Vatican II, Document on Education, 8)
"The educational mission of the Church is an integrated ministry embracing three interlocking dimensions: message, community, and service. Catholic schools afford the fullest and best opportunity to realize this threefold purpose of education among children and young people." (National Council of Catholic Bishops, To Teach As Jesus Did, 101)
In light of these Church teachings, St. Ursula Villa is committed to the education of children in partnership with parents who recognize that, for people of faith, the wisdom and culture transmitted by a school are enriched and put into perspective by the gospel message of Jesus.
