Goals of Catholic Education

Ultimate goals of Catholic education are that students will:

· recognize their dignity as persons made in the image and likeness of God, a dignity extended to everyone in our human family

· accept God's unconditional love for them as most fully expressed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ

· respond with gratitude, joy and generosity to God's extravagant care for them

· know God's love as a transformational force in the world, and that as faithful members of the Body of Christ in the world, we are called to act with justice on behalf of the poor and marginalized in society

· become careful stewards of our natural world

· understand the importance of being lifelong, active members of a faith community
