"The purpose of Mary Help of Christians School is to provide a quality education in a Christ-central environment and to work with families to build a faith community dedicated to fostering the Christian ideals of love, patience, and understanding.
The school strives to help our students develop to the fullest potential spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially while leading them to discover and use their God-given talents which will help them meet the challenges of our changing society.
We believe each member of the Mary Help of Christians community has a duty to nurture the Gospel values of honesty, sincerity, responsibility, loyalty, cooperation and respect for authority.
These values will enable our students to grow in self-esteem, make mature and moral decisions, and become worthwhile, contributing citizens.
We seek to achieve these purposes and objectives through an on-going cooperative relationship with the parents, the first and foremost educators; through the classroom teachers as role models and witnesses; and through the curriculum, the vehicle for education - all ultimately rooted in the Roman Catholic Church and its principles."
