School Mission & Philosophy

Mission Statement

St. Catherine of Siena Parish School is a Roman Catholic learning community deeply committed to serving a diverse student body that focuses on developing a well-rounded child spiritually, academically and socially.

We unite generations of students, alumni, and parishioners together into a life-long community by developing a nurturing and loving environment through worship, service, and the recognition of the value and dignity of each individual.

School Philosophy

St. Catherine of Siena Parish School community is called and committed to teach as Jesus did. Filled with faith and guidance by the charism entrusted to the Sacro Costato Missionary Sisters, our students will follow Jesus’ message of love, mercy and justice to grow to be people of service, enriched by the sacramental life.

Our philosophy empowers students to achieve their highest potential by implementing the Student Learning Expectations through an integrated program of spiritual, academic, and co-curricular activities. These messages are not lessons to be learned, but lessons to be lived.

In partnership with parents, who have the role of primary educators, as well as Archdiocesan, state and national curriculum standards and guidelines, we prepare the students to demonstrate the ability to think critically, act creatively and integrate Gospel values. Through their education, students will develop an understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church's mission and traditions.
