As Christian educators, the mission of Holy Spirit School is to be an example of Christ for others, so that they may grow in His love, wisdom and strength.
Through our words, deeds and prayer life, we strive to create a climate where Christian values permeate and unify all areas of learning--academic, social, physical and spiritual.
Thus, each person in our care can be nurtured to attain his/her potential within an atmosphere of commitment to others.
We serve God by giving witness to His teachings.
