My Philosophy

My life is directed by my faith in God. My philosophy is to provide a Catholic education that is academic, spiritual, emotional, and physical in a Christ-centered community.

  • I will prepare students to assume a positive role in society by respecting others, acknowledging individual differences guided by God's unconditional love.
  • I will promote the dignity of each student and encourage the love of others.
  • I will instruct students in the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and strive to strengthen and deepen their Christian beliefs and values.
  • I will guide students to accept responsibility for their own actions with appropriate behavior.
  • I will encourage students to love and respect themselves and demonstrate a concern for the welfare of all people, discrimination will not be tolerated.
  • I will assist students to understand and accept the role of authority in their formative years in preparation for decisions and choices they will make in their own adult life.
  • I will recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children and I will cooperate with them in all aspects of their children's development.
  • I will attempt to motivate the spirit of inquiry, the acquisition of knowledge and the formation of worthwhile goals.
  • I will evaluate students on a daily basis through observation and a variety of assessment tools. The criteria for evaluation are diverse and will assess each student's needs and strengths.
  • I will send students from Saint John the Apostle School equipped with academic, spiritual, moral, and social values to lead a productive life.
