Paraclete High School as a Catholic school of the Archdiocese, participates in the wider mission of the Church through proclamation of Christ in the light of Scriptures, Catholic tradition, and through its academic, athletic, and social programs.
Fostering active service through emphasizing the unique value of every person, Paraclete also challenges students to active responsibility and provides a Christian Service Program for outreach to the school community and the community outside it.
As an academic institution, Paraclete seeks primarily to prepare students for entrance and success at the college level.
The school also provides courses for students not necessarily college bound, maintaining for all a challenge to love learning, to respect science and the arts, to be able to think critically, and to understand values.
Paraclete encourages athletic participation in physical education classes and on extramural teams seeking to educate and develop the whole person.
The school is committed to both girls' and boys' athletics, with each program careful to be true to the religious and moral values of the whole institution's philosophy.
The motto of Paraclete High School is "Veni, Lumen Cordium," Come, Light of the Heart.
