Holy Spirit School

  • As Christian educators, the mission of Holy Spirit School is to be an example of Christ for others, so that they may grow in His love, wisdom and strength.
  • Through our words, deeds and prayer life, we strive to create a climate where Christian values permeate and unify all areas of learning--academic, social, physical and spiritual.
  • Thus, each person in our care can be nurtured to attain his/her potential within an atmosphere of commitment to others.
  • We serve God by giving witness to His teachings. We serve our community and neighboring communities by offering a Christ-centered education.
  • We serve our faith community-for by strengthening and nurturing its members -- we nurture and strengthen the whole Church.
  • We are Christ-centered and proclaim a three-fold purpose: to spread the message of Good News through daily living; to help build a community of faith, and to service with Christ-like lov.
