St John Brebeuf School

  • 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.
