Catholic Education: Developing Conscience and Courage in the Present for the Future

This is a good time to remember why we have Catholic schools and why we became teachers or staff members. Catholic schools exist to provide an excellent education and to pass on the Catholic faith. Not every student is Catholic, of course, but if we provide a solid, values-based education, rooted in Scripture and teachings of the Catholic Church, we are offering our students the opportunity to form their consciences and make good decisions now and in the future.
