Statement of Philosophy

for St. Anne's School

The Catholic School is a Christian community established by the Bishop. It is an intergral part of the parish and is an extension of the family. It seeks to offer high quality academic programs which are integrated with religious truth and values. Students are prepared for life in today's Church, and for leadership in society and the Church of tomorrow through a strong, basic, and contemporary curriculum by instruction and formation in the beliefs, values, and traditions of Cathoic Christianity.

The devlopment of the whole person of the student, spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially, and physically, is the focus of Cathoic education. The teachers, as partners with the parents, play significant role in this educational ministry as they daily witness to the meaning of mature faith and Christian living. They are selected with care and are challenged to ongoing professional and spiritual growth.

The school seeks to maintain academic excellence in all areas and yet it realizes that its reason for existence depends upon the Chrisitan attitudes and values it imparts. It is for this reason that every child participates in the study of Religion, Sacred Scripture, and attends Mass and Liturgical Celebrations.

Through its philosophy, the Catholic School fulfills the mission of the Church in accepting the mandate of Jesus Christ Himself: "Full authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth: go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations...Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you" Matthew 28:18b-20
