Be it known to all who enter here, that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen, but ever-present teacher in its classrooms. He is the model for its faculty and the inspiration of its students.
Our focus on the “Whole Child” recognizes that tomorrow’s world needs citizens strong in mind, body, and spirit. There are countless opportunities to put values into action in communion with the entire school community.
Catholic schools exist to provide each student with an excellent Christ-centered education to develop the whole child – mind, body, and spirit. Catholic schools fulfill the tasks of catechesis through the teaching of religion, celebration of the sacraments, engagement in missionary discipleship projects, and regular opportunities for prayer and retreat. The combination of a rigorous curriculum with active faith and values, prepares our students to confidently meet the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow. The sacredness of each human life and the dignity of each human person is the foundation of a Catholic moral vision for society locally, nationally, and globally.
Catholic Faith Communities
Catholic schools are faith-filled communities that provide sources of strong institutional support as well as safe, caring environments – especially during times of local and national crises. The Catholic school collaborates with parents who are the primary educators of children. The shared faith and commitment of a Catholic school fosters a bond that enriches parents and students alike.
In order to form a life-long commitment to create a more just society and to serve the poorest, students are challenged at every age to go forth in service and love. It is only when faith meets action that our Catholic faith becomes real. All schools integrate community service, beginning in the first grade, into the school curriculum. For Catholic school students, service is not just an extra-curricular activity or a one-time subject, but the beginning of a lifetime journey to answer one’s personal call to discipleship.
