Roncalli Primary School

  • At Roncalli, faith is central to everything we do. We can discuss it in any class.
  • We practice it in our activities. It's part of the air we breathe.
  • Our goal at Roncalli is for students to graduate with the ability to lead a life with a strong faith that is individually satisfying and beneficial to the greater society.
  • The Aberdeen Catholic School System stresses the core subjects and expects high achievement.
  • That philosophy makes the acss relatively unique. Expecting superior rather than average encourages solid performance.
  • This attitude is shared by the students. It is not "uncool" to excel at Roncalli.
  • Our students form their faith through work in class as well as through the models they see in their teachers and classmates.
  • Our students-Catholic or not-have many opportunities to practice their faith.
  • We pray in class and in weekly Mass. One of the most moving moments is when our athletic events end with our students in prayer-win or lose-often joined by fans from the crowd.
