The education mission of the Church is clearly described by the American Bishops in their pastoral, To Teach As Jesus Did.
This mission sets Catholic Schools apart from public schools and other private schools.
It is the aim of our faculty to develop a Christian community of oneness among ourselves through open dialogue, ever striving for what is best for the children.
Our priority is to foster academic, religious and value centered learning in our children, and to prepare students for effective and responsible living and leadership in our world.
To achieve these ends, St Hyacinth School creates an environment that fosters community, high academic standards, discipline and order, a committed faculty, and strong parental interest and participation.
