Core Principles


"That they all may be one." (John 17:21) United as one family with our bishop, Catholic schools are at the service of the family, the parish, and the common good. Grounded in charity, we honor the dignity of every human person with respect for all life; for family and community; for peoples of all cultures, and especially for the most vulnerable. "Let no one have contempt for your youth; but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity." (I Timothy 5:12)


"Remain faithful to what you have learned. . ." (2 Timothy 3: 4) Loyal to the teachings of Jesus Christ as taught in our Catholic faith, we believe that the formation of disciples is our first purpose, our critical function, and our ultimate measuring stick. Trusting in God, we have a relentless passion for finding the best way to provide Catholic education, moving forward alone, if necessary. "Stir into flame the gift of God which you have." (2 Timothy 1: 6)


"Place your gifts at the service of one another." (I Peter 4: 10) The grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God's gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor. "Guard this rich trust ... " (2 Timothy 1:14)


"For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required." (Luke 12:48) As disciples of Jesus, the Divine Teacher, we will infuse virtue into instruction and activity so that our students will be respectful and courageous scholars who use their knowledge and gifts for the glory of God and in service to humanity. "Be steadfast and persevering ... " (I Corinthians 15:58)
