A Message from Sister Linda Larsen, Principal: We affirm our belief that the need for a unique and Christ centered education on all levels is greater today than ever before.
Our times threaten the values of Catholic education in general and the existence of Catholic schools in particular.
Fully aware of the accelerating changes in society, we work diligently to set our students on an unending pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.
We envision our students growing into men and women able to understand and cope with life, willing to serve others, and impelled to worship God.
Through faith, hope and love, we strive to create a joyous environment where the educator and those to become educated can expand their minds and hearts.
While guiding students to acquire skills, learn concepts, see relationships, and make judgments, we honor responsible freedom.
True education leads a person to discern and love truth, to follow right reason, and above all, to reverence God and all creation.
