Education Commission


The mission of the Education Commission is to foster within an educational environment the teaching and values of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church. Through the promotion of these teachings and values, a Christian community is created where students are accepted, cherished, and challenged. The school recognizes that parents are the primary teachers of their children in faith development, and assumes a mutual responsibility to enhance this development as well as the academic, social, physical, and emotional dimensions of each child.
