Statement of Philosophy

The faith community of Our Lady of the Assumption School is based on Catholic teachings as expressed through the message of the Gospel of Jesus. Each student is a unique creation of God. Students, in partnership with parents, teachers, staff, and the parish community, strive to grow and develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, personally, socially, physically, and culturally. Parents are recognized as the primary educators of their children and teachers as the facilitators of learning.

In addition to learning Catholic teachings, students within our faith community develop an awareness and practice of social justice and respond with opportunities for Christian outreach and service. As students are faced with growing challenges and complexities of life in the 21st century, they develop patterns of thought and behavior that bring forth age-appropriate Christian responses that will be based on Catholic ideals and the examples of Jesus Christ.
