  • By enabling our students to become good citizens in this world, fulfilling their destiny to become saints, while loving God and neighbor, thereby enriching society with the leaven of the gospel
  • Through curricula which brings the study of faith, life, and culture into harmony
  • Through teachers and staff who understand their mission as a vocation from God to form the whole child
