MISSION STATEMENT OF ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA SCHOOL

St. Catherine of Siena School, deeply rooted in its Catholic faith, fosters spiritual development,
academic excellence, and a commitment to serve others.
 

SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY 

Saint Catherine of Siena School is God's school. It is our goal to share the good news that the students are children of God, and that He has made them in His image and likeness. By this very gift each child and adult receives the love, dignity, and respect due them. In addition, we are called to inspire the children to reach their full potential. It is necessary to inspire the children to find out who they are and to identify themselves as a gift from God. Catholic schools allow the faculty, staff, and administration to go beyond the intellectual education. At Saint Catherine of Siena School students receive intellectual, spiritual, and moral formation with the hope that they develop a mature relationship with God and neighbor.

Saint Catherine of Siena School strives to build a faith community that reaches beyond the school building to include all people. The faculty, staff, and administration, because of their deep understanding of Christ's Gospel message, are God's important instrument used to achieve the mission and philosophy of the school.
