School - Philosophy / Goals


PHILOSOPHY

St. Leonard School, as an educational facility of the Parish, shares with the Parish the same general mission of accepting the responsibility of proclaiming Jesus.  This is accomplished by teaching the Message revealed by God through His Son, Jesus, by experiencing Catholic Christian Community, and by spreading and sharing this Truth and Love in Service to others.

The school believes that the light of faith received at Baptism must be integrated into all of life in the Spirit of the Church in accordance with the Second Vatican Council.

All those involved in the school - faculty, service personnel, students, parents - strive to build a loving, caring community of faith.  Together all grow in service to God, one another, and the broader community, so as to experience the fullness of life.

The school strives to integrate Gospel values in curriculum teaching so that the whole child is educated in the spiritual, intellectual, social and personal modes and encouraged to develop to his/her greatest potential.
