Saint Clare is a private Catholic school in the Paterson Diocese located in Clifton, New Jersey. The faculty and staff of Saint Clare School believe that every aspect of life is important; spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional. We believe that every child is unique and valuable, because their life comes from God. We believe in the importance of improving the quality of life for everyone, everywhere. It is our belief that if we have helped a child to become more human, non-racist, more able to believe in the ultimate value of life, more helpful – then we have prepared them for life. In guiding the intellectual development of students, we endeavor to encourage students to develop to their greatest potential, believing that each student has strengths that when explored can spark learning success. Our commitment is to a learning environment which encourages academic excellence and develops an inquisitive mind which meets individual needs. Promoting the development of the whole child insures that all students enjoy some degree of success. In guiding the personal development of our students, we endeavor to form within them positive mental attitudes towards self, others and the world in which they live. We focus on the strengths of each individual, instilling a level of confidence and determination, continually striving towards self actualization. Encouraging high standards and fostering independence contribute to the students’ growth toward maturity.
