Mission and Beliefs

Our Mission:

The mission of Saint Catherine of Siena School is to provide an excellent Catholic Faith-based education for children in Pre-School through Grade 8 in a safe and trusting environment, with an emphasis on mutual respect. The school exists in the context of a parish community, to assist families in guiding their children spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically, with a strong focus on Roman Catholic principles and values.

Our Beliefs:

  • Christ is the reason for this school.  He is the unseen but ever present teacher in our classrooms.  He is the model for our faculty and the inspiration for our students.
  • Teachers, parents, clergy and staff strive for excellence within the framework of the mission and work of Catholic education and St. Catherine of Siena Parish.
  • Every individual can make a contribution to this community and is encouraged to do so gladly.
  • All members of this community treat each other, as they would like to be treated.
  • All members of this community will work together for the overall spiritual and educational vitality of the school.
  • Students are prepared to be engaged, faith-filled members of the larger community in an ever-changing society.
  • Catholic education is a gift in the life of each student’s faith formation and, thereby, a gift in the life of the Church.

Catholic education at Saint Catherine of Siena School endeavors to create an environment that fosters the development of the spiritual, academic, and physical growth of the child in an atmosphere that enables students to discover what is best in themselves while discovering and reverencing Christ in each other. To be Christian means to be as Christ, to think and love as Christ.

Our school motto reflects our beliefs: “See Christ in others. Be Christ for others.”
