School Notes

  • OUR PHILOSOPHY: Our school is a Catholic community where students, parents, staff and administration work together. We function as a community celebrating liturgy, our Catholic legacy, and life as worship. The learning process is a partnership shared by the student, who accepts the responsibility and challenge for his/her own education; the parent, who serves as primary role model for learning in each child's life; and the teacher, whose expertise guides the learning activities of the student. We maintain that knowledge is a means of education, not its end. We recognize that as a Catholic school, academic knowledge integrated with Catholic values helps foster positive and productive character in our students. We believe that all education is a lifelong pursuit.
