St. Matthew School
- The philosophy of St. Matthew School is the development of the whole person.
- This development fosters unity with God's Trinitarian life, to which all people are called.
- Christian discipleship, as outlined in the Gospels and Roman Catholic doctrine, is the heart of our curriculum and the fundamental ideal of all of our efforts.
- Each student is empowered to strive for reverence, spiritual growth, intellectual excellence, emotional maturity, social responsibility and healthy physical development.
- We believe in an integrated approach to education. Our program provides each student with opportunities for Christian collaboration, academic achievement, critical thinking, artistic appreciation and social awareness.
- This enables our students to develop a sense of their unique giftedness, moral responsibility and self-worth as cherished members of God's family.
- Building on our Catholic heritage, our vision is the creation of an affirming and challenging educational environment.
- All members of our culturally diverse population are welcomed, nurtured and valued as images of God.
- In this way, we seek to prepare our students to build the Kingdom of God as contributing members and ministers whose lives manifest the Spirit of Christ in the world.
- As a Christian academic community serving a diverse population, we endeavor to build the Kingdom of God by: fostering a reverence for all life; respecting and affirming the unique giftedness of each child; demonstrating a spirit of Christian collaboration; empowering the children to develop moral values, self-discipline and responsibility; creating an environment in the hopes of instilling a life-long appreciation of learning and critical thinking; and providing opportunities for social awareness.
