Philosophy

Having accepted the directive of Jesus, each teacher strives to instill in the child the Christian qualities and principles that Jesus taught.  The Gospel message of hope and salvation is communicated to the student through religious instruction.   With an understanding of this, the student is encouraged to make a relevant application of this message to his daily life.

Community is the heart of Catholic education.  This sense of community is initiated within the home and is complemented, reinforced, and extended in the faith community.  The adult Christian community with which the student comes in contact provides a model exemplifying the Gospel spirit of peace, love, and respect for others.  Participation in the Eucharistic celebration fosters a sense of unity within each student.  Simultaneously, the student demonstrates growth in community through worship and daily living.  By experiencing this fellowship, the student grows in his commitment to serve God and others.
