*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.
