We, the Christian educators, models, and servers of St. Leo School are the instruments for creating future generations of active, believing, Catholic Christians.
We strive to accomplish this by serving God, each other, our students and their families, as well as our community and society.
To teach as Jesus did, is the purpose of our existence.
We try to develop in our students a familiarity with Christ so that they may respond to God as total Christians.
One of our major goals is to instill in our children a sense of uniqueness that can be used to benefit themselves and others.
Another would be to develop Christian values that they can realistically take into a modern world.
We endeavor to establish in the children, their full potential, intellectually as well as emotionally, encouraging them to become leaders in their community.
We strive to achieve these goals by keeping a viable line of communication open with students, parents, and community.
