It is essential to create a Catholic culture in which every aspect of the school community is imbued with a sense of faith and strives to proclaim the Gospel message. The root of all instructional decisions is in the magisterial teachings of the Church and her long-established traditions. In addition, the school should be a place where students have ready access to formal prayer, religious images, and statues, all things that help to make the spiritual closer to the human mind.
“Let them put Christ before all else; and may he lead us all to everlasting life.”
Rule of Saint Benedict
Religion is taught as one of the core subject areas along with language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. The Faith & Life textbook series, published by Ignatius Press, is used in grades 1-8. All students receive a minimum of 30 minutes of religion instruction per day.
