Our mission is to impart an education which has as its goal the Christian development of each student in body, mind, and spirit in an atmosphere of respect and understanding.
We commit ourselves to foster in each child intellectual curiosity and eagerness toward independent life-long learning.
We endeavor to guide our students to attain the fullness of their personalities in relation to God, themselves, and others in the sacred and secular spheres of their lives.
The curriculum at Our Lady of Calvary integrates religious truths and values with the enrichment of each student's education through varied offerings to develop the whole child.
The basic goal of our curriculum is to improve the learning situation so that our students may grow, learn, and develop to their capacity spiritually, mentally, and socially.
Programs in our school are based on guidelines set up by the Archdiocesan Office.
Teachers follow these guidelines and correlate materials appropriate to the recommended courses of study.
The school admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, to all the services and activities of the school, without discrimination, and operates with the goals of self-worth, Christian values, potential, self living by the gospel, and community and service.
