St. Charles School is a Catholic Christian educational institution dedicated to the formation of the whole person to meet the challenges of the modern world in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
In cooperation with parents, who are the first and most important teachers, the school community guides students toward total development by preparing them morally, through the teaching, modeling, and internalization of values; spiritually, through inspiration granted by our faith; intellectually, through transmission of age-appropriate knowledge and love of learning; physically, through acquisition of skills and habits that respect the gifts of their bodies; and sociologically, through appreciation of all cultures and preparation for membership in civic and global communities.
The students, parents and teachers of St. Charles School are committed to development of a learning community that celebrates all, excludes none, and reaches out to the world through dedication to excellence in education and growth in Christian spirit.
We, the community of Saint Charles Borromeo School, are committed to becoming responsible, respectful citizens and effective communicators through our dedication to life long learning and Christianity.
