Mission, Philosophy & Purpose
"Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve"
To instill faith, knowledge, and service in the hearts and minds of students through instruction, modeling, and guidance.
We partner with parents to provide a quality Catholic education. We help students discover their God-given gifts, encourage them to use these gifts in the service of others, and empower them to be models of integrity. We encourage students to reach their full academic, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical potential while recognizing each child’s unique strengths and talents, challenging them to achieve their personal best.
Jesus Christ is the foundation of our community. His call to teach is our inspiration; His image the model for our students. As a community, in partnership with parents and the entire parish, we prepare our students to become full and active members of the Catholic Church, to serve others, and to make a difference in the world.
Our goal is to help develop individuals who demonstrate strong character, service, and competence in all areas of their lives. We encourage our students to actively and joyfully bring faith to life and life to faith. We strive to develop lifelong learners and faith-filled community leaders and help our students understand and acquire the habits of mind that develop integrity, responsibility, initiative, and perseverance. We work to prepare our students for global citizenship with a continuous focus on character development, using Jesus as our model.
