St. John Brebeuf is a Catholic School where human culture and knowledge, enlightened and strengthened by faith, is shared in a spirit of trust, discipline, and love.
Our school is a living faith community – one which witnesses the presence of Jesus, to and for the varied cultures in which it exists.
The unique role of our school is to provide a Christian philosophy and moral value system along with the basic sequential development of skills, seeking academic excellence through an awareness of individual differences.
This will enable students to live a Christian life and to make intelligent and just decisions now and in their adult lives.
Teachers and parents share responsibility with the student for spiritual, moral, and academic growth of the student.
By example, by learning experiences, by faith sharing, by liturgy, by service, students are encouraged, strengthened, taught, supported, and gently led toward shaping the future that is theirs.
