Catholic education means…
College-bound peers – The vast majority, approximately 94% of Catholic school graduates, pursue higher education. Catholic School graduates are often pursued by prestigious colleges. A rigorous curriculum – Most students take four years of STEM, mathematics, history, English, science, foreign language and religious studies. Self-discipline – Students are expected to accept responsibility for their actions, to respect others and to make good decisions in the context of their faith experience. Christ as a model – The goal of a Catholic education is to help children mature into Christ-like people. Students are encouraged to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. The religious formation of children begun at home is continued in Catholic school. A safe, supportive environment – Reverence for the human dignity of every person comes from recognizing Christ in self and others. More than “drug-free zones” or “gun-free zones,” Catholic schools strive to be “Christ-centered zones.” High expectations – Catholic school teachers encourage every student to achieve his or her full potential. Committed parents – Parents are a child’s first teachers. At Catholic schools, parents take an active role in their children’s education. The school supports families and works with them for the benefit of children. A caring community – Catholic school teachers and staff partner with parents and families to support formation of the whole child – academically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. Students are nurtured in the faith and known by name.
