Our purpose is to acquaint our students with important and substantial information about life and the world called “knowledge” and to aid students in the development of the principles of morality, discipline and self-reliance.

All students are included in this task whether eager to learn and to grow or reluctant to do so. It is our responsibility to help, as well as to guide them, to think critically, to form mature judgments and to assume a role in society which models mature and decided Catholic Christians. We seek to prepare students to become an integral part of the world in which they live, to interpret it intelligently, to contribute to it positively and to change it responsibly.

We provide a moral, ethical, spiritual, and aesthetic view that encourages personal responsibility, service to others and love of neighbor. We provide academic programs that stress high standards, and we offer varied extra-curricular activities that encourage cooperation and competition.

We provide a concerned, caring community of dedicated teachers, staff and administrators. Our process of education will be successful with the cooperation of the home, the school and the students.
