Our Mission

We believe that a Catholic school is more than a place where doctrine is learned. A Catholic school is a Christian community where children can live in a Christian atmosphere, putting into practice the life about which they are learning. We expect to work together with the parish community to strive for high goals and to improve the education process. We believe that each child is a person to be respected. A child must be accepted and loved for himself/herself, no matter what his/her talents, faults or knowledge. No child should be asked to work beyond his/her capabilities; each child should grow by means of a series of successes learning from his/her mistakes, feeling good about himself /herself, and learning how to learn. We believe that to accomplish this we must foster our own spiritual life, encourage the school community to Christian life through Mass and the Sacraments, invite parental involvement, utilize and develop the talents of the staff, seek out appropriate educational materials and maintain communications with parents, parish, and the local community. First and foremost, we recognize that parents bear the primary responsibility in the education of their children. We, as educators, join with parents within the framework of a community consisting of pastor, parents, students, faculty, and volunteers to provide a quality education for all students. We acquaint students with their responsibilities in the school, home, and world communities and encourage them to serve other generously in ways appropriate to their ages and talents. By fully integrating learning with living in the light of faith, we assist the students in building a positive self-image.

Faith Based Education

As our mission states, we are dedicated to making sure that students will be successful in academic pursuits, spiritual development, and service to the community. We allow students the opportunity to pray throughout the day. In addition, there are opportunities to pray and participate in the sacraments as a community.

Morning Prayer

Each morning that is not a Mass day, we meet together as a school to start the day with prayer. This is a great opportunity for students to reflect on the readings for the day and discuss how scripture applies to our daily lives.

Weekly Mass

Every Tuesday we have student-led Mass. Each grade, 2nd–8th, gets the opportunity to lead the Mass by reading, altar, serving, ushering, and bringing up the gifts. Students rotate through these opportunities so that everyone gets a chance to participate.
