The aim and content of our educational program considers not only the child's mind and body but also, and most importantly, his/her immortal soul.
To form true and honest Catholic Christians who will live in this world in such a way as to enter the happiness of heaven is surely the aim of Catholic parents who have the first and greatest responsibility for the education of their children.
