The foremost purpose of St. Cornelius School is to provide an atmosphere in which all our children will come to know and experience a life in Jesus and the Spirit.
As a Catholic community we are committed to transmitting sound moral doctrine and example to all those children whose parents share their child's welfare with us.
A program of academic excellence will be guided by the hand of the Spirit to develop a curriculum that will enable our children to be prepared for the challenges of the twenty first century.
It is very important that a Spirit of respect and reverence be inculcated in both students and faculty as we witness to the true dignity of each of us.
This will be accomplished by committing ourselves to provide meaningful worship experiences on a regular basis, so that children may develop an appreciation of the Catholic faith and tradition; a sense of obedience to the Word of Christ as spoken by the Church and their parents.
