Philosophy Statement

 

We, as a parish school, believe that true community is achieved by living out the Good News of the Gospel.
 

We believe in the spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, physical, and creative development of the whole person.
 

We foster the development of the students in partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children.
 

We respond to the teaching ministry by inspiring students to reach their full potential in a secure and loving environment.
 

We, as a Catholic community, emphasize service to God, one another, the Church, and the world, thereby developing a commitment to social justice.
