Belief Statement

*Revised, October 26, 2012

We believe that

  • To be true to our Catholic Ursuline tradition, a community of faith in God and belief in human potential are essential for learning.
  • Ethnic and religious diversity are valued by our school community.
  • Students must assume personal responsibility and accountability for their actions.
  • All students, regardless of abilities or challenges, have a right to a quality education in a safe learning environment that promotes self-esteem and respect for all in a sisterhood community.
  • Education is most successful when students, teachers, parents and community work collaboratively.
  • The curriculum should emphasize the value of services as it provides for volunteer and leadership opportunities in school, church and the society.
  • Students must be challenged to work towards excellence and not to accept mediocrity.
  • Students must be encouraged to adopt a holistic approach to their education in terms of success in academics, arts, athletics, and service.
  • Encouraging students to be critical and independent thinkers will prepare them to become lifelong learners in an ever-changing society.
