 Our Curriculum

Our Philosophy of Education

Everything that we do in our classrooms must reflect our school's mission and vision. We desire to achieve excellence in faith formation, academics and service. We see continual school and student advancement. It is not just about students' SAT scores or grades; we are also concerned about their strength of character and depth of religious faith. Consistent and faithful study enables our students to discover the flow of divine providence in creation.

Course syllabi can be found on their respective teachers' pages.
