belief statement AND PHILOSOPHY
Here at Notre Dame, we believe in:
NOTRE DAME PHILOSOPHY
The formation of students is dynamic in nature. The religious dimension of the school is integrated into the general education of the students. Teachers create a positive and supportive climate and students are encouraged to be active agents in their own development. Emphasis is placed on the priorities of human life and the understanding of continuity between the past and today’s culturally diverse society. This focus fosters awareness in regards to the need for social justice in the world, and a personal commitment to alert, responsible and active citizenship.
As educators, we recognize the urgency to nurture our students into healthy, faith-filled peacemaking adults who will not only function in, but also provide stability and morality in a technologically driven 21st century, which will be marked by innovation.
