Catholic schools provide education rooted in Christ and the development of the individual. Yes, Catholic schools offer first-rate academics filled with rigorous course-work, problem solving and experiential learning. And, we are more than that.
Catholic schools educate the whole person. Beyond the academics, children grow in faith, community, love, service, and personal values. Catholic schools foster religious and moral development in a world searching for direction and value. Our students are not merely our pupils; they are our hope for a better future. That is why it is essential that each student develops his/her own sense of self. This faith-filled environment instills high degrees of self-respect, self-confidence, and self-discipline among students. In schools, students learn the tools to successfully function in a modern but ever-changing society. The difference is that in Catholic schools, students learn how to use these tools to suit the greater good.
