St. John Bosco Academy

We work to form well-rounded Catholic leaders convinced of the truth, who will leave their mark in shaping a new civilization of justice and love, spreading the Kingdom of Christ by taking their place as responsible and qualified leaders in the family, in the community, in the Church, and in the world.
To Teach the Mind: Giving students a foundation in the truth in all subjects so they can study, analyze, and build upon this foundation. Truth is the foundation of knowledge from which all other learning flows.
To Educate the Heart: Educating a student's heart and senses with a love for what is right, good, noble, just and beautiful through the study of arts, literature, and Christianity.
To Form the Character: Encouraging and helping to form in each student a sense of responsibility, service to others, integrity in word and deed, perseverance, manners and a practice of the virtues.
