Mission and Beliefs

Holy Family Statue OutsideMission Statement 

Our mission is to provide students an education rooted in the life of Christ and to foster the pursuit of excellence in the whole person.

Belief Statements

We believe that our Catholic high school is an evangelizing community of students, teachers, staff, and parents, providing our students an education rooted in the life of Christ and directed toward a personal relationship with Him.

We believe that our school is a great gift to our church and community, which carries out the mandate of teaching given to us by Christ to proclaim the gospel, and which celebrates the Catholic faith through worship and service to others.

We believe in the full development of the human person, including the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical aspects of one's being. Commitment to academic excellence is an integral part of our identity as a Catholic school.

We believe that students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process, and when each student has appropriate opportunities for success.

We believe that student self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and faculty; that students thrive in a supportive yet stimulating climate which affirms the dignity of all persons; and that we are called to educate students of diverse economic, cultural, religious, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.
