Believing

Strengthening the Distinctively Catholic Character of our Schools and Programs.

Our Strategic Commitments:

Define and Celebrate Catholic Identity
Ensure a deep understanding of Catholic identity for all partners, through the development of a framework and process to support ongoing reflection and review of Catholic culture in our schools and workplaces.

Faith Formation
Create, enhance, and provide opportunities for all staff, students, and members of the extended community to know and live their faith, to engage in personal faith formation, and to grow in their desire to serve others.

Emphasize the Catholic Graduate Expectations
Consistently use the lens of Catholic Graduate Expectations to ensure students, staff, and parents understand and are supported in the expectation that Catholic values and world view are infused into all aspects of the curriculum.

Emphasize the Catholic Social Teachings
Promote and support student, staff, and community opportunities to engage in Social Justice issues and activities as an expression of faith in action.

Home, School, Parish Partnership
Enhance, promote, and support strong and positive partnerships between home, school, and parish.

Our 2014-2015 System Priorities in Believing were:

  • Continue to infuse our Catholic faith throughout all instruction and activities that take place in our schools with our staff, students, and community.

  • Create an enhanced path for communication and involvement for all partners in the Home-School-Parish Triad to engage in opportunities to work together and deepen the connection between home, school and parish with students at the heart of the connection.

  • Continue to enrich faith experiences for staff, students and parents through the Theological Theme: “Who Do You Say that I Am?” making connections to the New Evangelization.
