To this end, we help the whole child develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and aesthetically.
Our students benefit from a developmental program designed for individual attainment of an optimum level of skills, a practical body of knowledge, a wholesome concept of self and the desire to use their talents for service as responsible citizens.
The Academy serves the greater Livingston community by offering academic programs that stimulate curiosity, the desire to learn, and creativity.
Students learn to form values necessary for responsible decision making.
They are instructed in the meaning of life and the significance of the individual as well as in Catholic doctrine.A spirit of cooperation exists among the teachers, priests, Religious Education Director, and staff who work together to communicate the gospel message to all our children.
In recognition of contemporary family needs, the Academy established an Early Chilhood Center.
Our teachers, all certified in Early Childhood, are selected for their genuine understanding of, and love for, young children.
The staff is supplemented by teacher assistants who provide the added support and care necessary to ensure a quality program.".
