Forming Faith and Values
Our schools instruct students in Catholic teaching and support the efforts of parents to instill in their children the values of the Gospel. By choosing a Catholic school, parents can be confident knowing they are helping their child build a foundation of faith that will last a lifetime.
- Catholic Values: Students are surrounded by people who share your beliefs and values.
- Catholic Identity: Students strengthen their Catholic identity through daily prayer, regular Mass, preparation for the Sacraments and other spiritual formation.
- Commitment to Service: From an early age, students are taught to live out their faith by helping others and working to better their community.
Participation in the arts, extracurricular activities, and athletics enhance the learning experience and are available at all Catholic schools. While opportunities vary among schools, in general, students may choose to sign up for activities such as band, chess club, technology club and scouting. These activities enrich children, develop their character and allow them to celebrate their God-given talents.
Community is at the heart of Catholic education. The shared faith and commitment of Catholic school families foster a bond that enriches parents and students alike. The superior academic outcomes of our schools go hand in hand with the high expectations of a supportive faith community that is deeply invested in each child’s growth and development.
