In partnership with parents, the mission of St. Catharine School is to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, creative, and physical strengths of its students. The school realizes this goal through a structured, nurturing, and Christian environment that emphasizes identifiable and consistent discipline with a mutual respect for all. Utilizing an integrated approach to curriculum, the school seeks to challenge each student to become a lifelong learner and acquire knowledge to the fullest extent of his or her ability.
The St. Catharine School motto, Faith•Knowledge•Service, guides all facets of the school in its mission to ensure that every child receives a quality education imbued with Christian values. Beliefs introduced in the home are further developed in all areas of the curriculum at SCS, and are affirmed through ongoing acts of community service.
At St. Catharine School, teachers continue and enrich the religious formation begun by the parents. The administration, faculty, and staff model Christian behavior to foster spiritual growth, striving to transmit the truth that Religion is not just a subject, rather a way of life. The children learn to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. Through daily prayer, meaningful liturgies, and inspirational services throughout the year, the students learn to live out the Gospel message.
