“Be it known to all who enter here that CHRIST is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model of its faculty and the inspiration of its students.” –unknown
"It is from its Catholic identity that the School derives its original characteristics and its "structure" as
a genuine instrument of the Church, a place of real and specific pastoral ministry. The Catholic
School participates in the evangelizing mission of the Church and is the privileged environment in which Christian education is carried out. In this way "Catholic Schools are at once places of evangelization, of complete formation, of inculturation, of apprenticeship in a lively dialogue between young people of different religions and social backgrounds.. "The ecclesial nature of the Catholic
School, therefore, is written in the very heart of its identity as a teaching institution."
