- The mission of the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Des Moines is to provide meaningful educational experiences for children/adolescents in an environment integrated by Gospel values which nurtures faith, community, prayer and service.
- Therefore, we believe that Catholic schools exist to teach the traditions and doctrines of the Catholic Church and to live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ; parents are the primary educators and Catholic schools are partners with parents in the education of their children/adolescents; Catholic schools will provide a warm, caring environment where children/adolescents will be challenged to learn the essential curriculum regardless of learning rate or style; all children/adolescents in Catholic schools will learn the value of human dignity and the concepts of peace and justice to enable them to be participants in a global society.
