Our Mission

IMG_2745Mission Statement

The mission of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School, in partnership with our parish, is to create an environment where students experience learning and living fully integrated lives in the light of faith, and to guide them in becoming responsible citizens who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Philosophy

We, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, in conjunction with our parish, share in and are committed to the mission of the Roman Catholic Church to teach doctrine, build community, and serve all people. Here we recognize that students have individual abilities, differences, and learning styles, and therefore create a student-centered learning environment that educates each child to his/her full academic and spiritual potential.

Meta Slider - HTML Overlay - First Day 100We appreciate the role of parents as the first to communicate the faith to their children and to educate them. Parents, pastors, teachers, administrators and students work in partnership to create a community of faith with emphasis on faith formation, excellence in academics, and service to all peoples. We strive to inspire our students to become Christians who proclaim the Gospel to all they meet by exemplifying Christian morals and values in day to day living.
