The St. Christopher School philosophy is based on the belief that a Catholic education is developed in a parish school supported by a faith community.
Parents are the primary educators of their children.
The development of Catholic citizens is the joint responsibility of the parents, the school, and the Church.
The fulfillment of developing the whole child-- the ideas, the attitudes, the habits, the values, and the principles -- can be achieved though a quality Catholic education which centers around the message of Jesus.
Recognizing the potential of the students for leadership, they are encouraged to appreciate their own self worth, continue to develop their talents and become aware of their responsibilities to self,God, Church and society.
