I Believe in One, Holy …

The Catholic School is the cornerstone of the Church’s educational mission. Traditionally, it has blended academic excellence with the development of Catholic morals and spiritual values. Likewise, St. John Chrysostom Catholic School strives to educate the total child through instruction in religious truth and values, the building and experiencing community, and serving others.

It is the aim of the Catholic School, our school, to integrate religious truths and values with the rest of learning and living in order to achieve academic excellence. These truths are taught and reinforced by prayer, liturgy, Catholic values, and formal religious studies. This is achieved in an atmosphere of cooperation between the staff, students, and parents.

Stemming from this cooperation, church, civic, and worldwide community will be fostered. It will start with the precious roots of home, be nourished in school, and continue to branch out to form a larger community. The spirit of concern, sharing, and belonging will be its hallmark.

The integration of religious values and community naturally leads to service to others. The schools will serve by inspiring Catholic commitment and emphasizing social justice. Our vision is to prepare academically excellent Catholic children who will positively serve society.
