Owensboro Catholic Schools share in the mission of the Church in cooperation with families to provide a religious and academic education, which prepares students to become responsible members of the family, Church and community.
The philosophy of the Owensboro Catholic Schools is one centered on the total development of the Christian child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, cultural, emotional and physical.
It is our belief that the function of the educator is to nurture this development of students as persons of the community, supporting and building on the faith-life of the child which is begun in the home.
We believe in the importance of a stable environment in which each member of the school family will be comforted and challenged by the Gospel message.
