At Catholic school, faith isn't just a part of our curriculum, it is the reason for our existence and the foundation for everything we do and say. Faith is integrated into all subjects. It is found on playing fields, taught through service trips and realized in daily interactions students have with the caring adults that are present to guide them. Faith is core to our culture, and our staff is committed to growing students' faith by educating them on Catholic Church teachings and living according to the principles Jesus taught.
Faith is a daily, integral part of your child’s education. At Catholic school, we:
We believe it is our duty to educate young people in Christ's teachings so that their God-given gifts can be awakened, developed and shared with the world.
While we are a Catholic school system, we welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds into our schools. In fact, nearly 1,500 students across our 70 schools are non-Catholic.
Catholic school has long welcomed and educated students of many different faiths. Our goal is not to convert non-Catholic students to the Catholic faith, yet our culture, one which emphasizes morals, values, discipline, respect and faith is one many families recognize as important in the educational process. Education, now more than ever, must consist of more than just test scores and imparting academic knowledge. Students of any faith will realize that Catholic education awakens greatness by first responding to the emotional and social needs of a child. Academic success is a byproduct of putting the person first.
Catholic teaching includes a commitment to serve the less fortunate. At Catholic school, we not only educate students about that commitment in the classroom, we demonstrate it outside of the classroom, too.
