Our Philosophy on Intellectual Development

- To challenge students to expand their intellectual capacity through opportunities offered in the classroom, intra-school, and community competitions.
- To encourage students to reach a level of achievement based on his/her own level of ability.
- To stimulate an appreciation for art, music, drama, foreign language, technology and physical education.
- To foster the development and growth of school faculty as leaders committed to Catholic education.
- To establish benchmarks for using technology as a tool for learning so that students are well prepared for a continually changing technological world.
- To continue providing technology training for teachers.
- To look at assessment in terms of levels of performance relative to the knowledge specific to a subject area.
- To provide stimulation for critical thinking and the use of up-to-date technology.
- To recognize that learning is a lifelong process.
