School Notes:

Our Beliefs As a Catholic Faith Community we believe:
  • Our actions and teachings need to reflect Jesus’ life and be consistent with Catholic tradition.

  • Students must be encouraged to develop moral courage and integrity.
  • Students must be encouraged to pursue the fulfillment of their God-given potential and to promote that fulfillment in others.
  • Learning is a life-long process; therefore, the ability and desire to obtain knowledge is as important as the knowledge itself.
  • Teachers, students and parents work best in a climate of mutual respect and cooperation.

  • A personal relationship with God
