What We Believe . . . .

We believe in God. We believe in the power of the individual to make a difference in our school, our parish, and in our world. We believe that education must prepare students for a changing world. We believe that education is a lifelong process. We believe that the educational process should include the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of the child in addition to the academic development. We believe the home, the parish, the community, and the school are partners with the student in the educational process. We believe each person is an unique individual whose needs must be addressed in the educational process. We believe a safe, orderly environment is conducive to learning.

We believe in the strength and benefits of a Catholic education.
