St. Maria Goretti School recognizes the parents as the primary educators of their children.
The administration, faculty, and staff accept the challenge to support parents by providing a solid educational program steeped in the atmosphere of Gospel values.
Our aim is that each student develops, within our diverse student body, a realistic self-image, learn according to their God-given ability, and grow in awareness of the needs of others.
We strive to accomplish this within the local, national, and global community of believers.
