Catholic education is founded on the mission of educating the whole child – mind, body, and spirit. In this way, each child is formed in a superior academic environment that focuses on instilling the highest quality learning experience, while ensuring that learning is rooted in Christ. At the same time, the social and emotional development of the child, from early childhood to adulthood, is the forefront of the schools learning environment. The Catholic church calls Catholic schools to partner with parents in the education of the young, to assist in providing a solid foundation in Christ and help the child’s growth to be good Catholic citizens of the world.
The schools work diligently to provide learning experiences that are transportable to the real world and provide the opportunity for the children to develop life-long learning skills and to be successful in college and beyond. The schools offer cross-curricular learning experiences through STREAM – Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math, as well as traditional learning environments that instill strong foundations in reading, writing, and social studies. The root of the school’s academic programs is founded in teaching for Mastery. In Catholic schools, student work to master the content presented and use the material learned authentically in real world environments.
