Our Catholic Philosophy
The impetus of a Catholic education is the development of a genuine Christian love based on the example of Christ. It must engender a love of learning, both spiritual and scholastic; develop an acceptance of one’s uniqueness; afford an atmosphere in which moral values mature; and form attitudes of human dignity and understanding. With the role of parents as the primary educators of their children always recognized, the religious formation of students must follow the catechetical norms and regulations of the Catholic Church by striving to:
- Help students discover the joy of celebrating with their brothers and sisters in the Faith.
- Use natural events in the lives of the students, as well as the scripture, liturgy, and the Church.
- Ensure that the message of Jesus is told to students.
- Nurture the growth of the individual student’s personal relationship with God.
