That was one of the questions that we asked our parents, staff, alumni, or students of our school. I already posted some of the responses to that question here.
Here are some additional responses. Clearly, a Catholic education is important and matters. The investment of our time, resources, and the sacrifices that our parents, staff, and parish are doing is making a difference in many people’s lives.
It helps to see that faith is a part of everyday life, not just a segmented piece of your life a few days a week. There is trust between parents and teachers and the school is an extension of the home – a very safe, nurturing environment.
My children are grounded in their faith, have excelled academically and continue to have a curiosity and thirst for learning.
I believe a Catholic education has helped our children by instilling the morals and values that we feel are important for them. The daily exposure to the Catholic faith will be part of my children’s lives forever. They have been impacted by the several service projects the school participates in, and they express interest in continuing to learn about the Catholic faith. Participation in the school mass has improved their understanding, and helped them see how God uses the talents of everyone (even children).
A Catholic education has helped me to grow in my faith and to find who I am
A few others:
Their faith is important to them, even as teens. It’s wonderful to see!!
Kids have a better understanding of who God is.
Helped to put Christ first above all.
As always, these are just a few of the many responses that we have received. I look forward to sharing more in the weeks and months ahead. Thank you again for your support of our school.
