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.
