The basis of our philosophy is our commitment to educating the whole child while recognizing each child's individuality.
In a warm and nurturing environment, faith is strengthened, academic skills are developed, and friendships are formed.
Working in partnership with the entire parish community, we prepare students to meet future faith and academic challenges and responsibilities.
We believe that respect for self and others is the key to positive self-esteem.
We believe that the development of the whole child is best nurtured when there is positive interaction among the home, school, and community.

All members of this community strive to create a warm, accepting environment in which each person feels comfortable to grow as an individual and in his relationship with Christ.
