Philosophy:
Students are welcomed into a caring and stimulating environment where they learn to think independently, become socially competent, and make decisions based on Catholic teachings. Our school ministry is expressed in objectives of personal spirituality, social justice and fairness, and a rigorous academic program where curiosity and excellence are expected.
As Disciples of Christ, students, staff, and families are encouraged to show kindness, respect, and concern for others, for the school, and for the community. Each of us, as children of God, made in His image, has been given talents and gifts which must be respected, loved, and honored in His name.
The school is confident that in this environment where a strong sense of self, fostered by a well-balanced, challenging academic curriculum and supported by a rich and vibrant faith life, each child will grow in mind, body, and soul and succeed in God’s world.
