The Value Of

Catholic Education

Catholic education goes far beyond the books. Our six value drivers focus on shaping the human person for life-long growth. Read more below to understand how your child can reach their limitless potential.

VALUE

Integrity

We develop character in students through a rich tradition of virtue-based education steeped in a focus on the human person. From community service opportunities to an emphasis on dignity and responsibility, we present the importance of integrity and wisdom—and provide the experiences to make it stick.

RESULT

Your student, a responsible leader in their community

VALUE

Community

We foster supportive, strong, and safe communities of students, families, teachers, and staff that directly affect society. Through lasting friendships and shared responsibility for others, we infuse communal experiences into every event, program, extracurricular activity, and classroom. Every school is a community. We understand that safety is more than walls or fences, it’s also trusting relationships.

RESULT

Your student, a more integrated and outward-focused citizen.

One aspect of Catholic schools that brings me joy is seeing principals and teachers greet students by name, even those who might not be in their classroom, as they walk through the campus.

VALUE

Opportunity

We believe in the potential of every student, regardless of their ethnicity, creed, or family situation. We hold fast that this dignity is given by God, and it is our greatest pride to ensure students from all walks of life are given academic, social, and spiritual opportunities that will in turn improve our communities and world.

RESULT

Your student, equipped and ready to act no matter the challenge

VALUE

Critical Thinking

We believe in both faith and reason, and we strive to challenge students outside of their comfort zones in order to promote a healthy human formation — both in knowledge learned and experiences lived. We believe that wholistic, sensitive, informed, and well-rounded young people who think critically for the common good will be the future laity and clergy who commit their lives to helping others.

RESULT

Your student, a balanced and well-informed member of society.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.

VALUE

Investment

We believe that Catholic education is a powerful investment in the future of our sons and daughters, families, cities, our Church, and our nation at large. By providing opportunities for personal growth and learning for our children, we will empower them to be change agents in the world, equipping them with the knowledge they need to make positive and powerful choices, and the formation of their hearts to desire it.

RESULT

Your student, a recipient of the proven success of a Catholic school.

VALUE

Personalization

No child is alike. We believe that every child was uniquely created by God for a great purpose in the world. We put this belief into action through innovative and forward-thinking approaches to individualized learning including smaller class sizes, arts programs, and proven classroom models (i.e. STEM, dual-language immersion and blended learning). This individual attention is proven to make our environments safer, our students more successful, and our impact greater.

RESULT

Your student, a more aware and adaptive person.
