Costa Catholic School
- Costa Catholic School is a Catholic Christian Community dedicated to the total education of the child, always recognizing the family, which is the primary source of the child's education.
- Its philosophy holds that every facet of life is important: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and social.
- Costa Catholic School offers a preschool though eighth grade curriculum.
- We believe that our foremost mission is to bring the living God into the hearts and minds of our students.
- We seek to accomplish this goal through instruction and, more importantly, by the way we, the faculty and staff, conduct ourselves in our daily lives.
- We further seek to foster cooperation and a sense of community among the parishes and families of Costa Catholic School.
- Though dedicted primarily to the spirtual development of each child, we recognize that a healthy spirit is related to one's intellectual and physical development.
- Thus, we believe it is our mission to provide a well-rounded Catholic education based on excellence in academics and dedicated to the development of the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, and physically.
