Company Description

In our Christ-centered environment, we provide formative faith lessons and experiences, pursue academic excellence, participate in the sacramental life and devotions of the Catholic Church, offer engaging student activities, and give students opportunities for growth in virtue and character. It is through this educational plan that students are formed spiritually, intellectually, morally, and physically as they are prepared for high school and grow into disciples of Christ who are ready to respond to God’s call.

It is our vocation to cultivate faith, virtue, and wisdom in children by educating the whole child. We seek to develop students into lifelong learners who wonder and are curious about the world; know how to engage it; think critically by analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing prior knowledge with new discoveries; problem solve; make sound judgments; and then communicate these deeper understandings in a persuasive and beautiful manner.
