Mission & Philosophy

Igniting the Passion to Serve, to Discover, to Lead

St. Veronica School will expand each student's God-given gifts through Catholic-centered academic excellence.  We are devoted to developing the whole person, instilling a lifelong passion for discovery, for leadership and servitude. 

Our school exists as part of the mission of the St. Veronica Catholic Parish to help parents pass on to their children the Catholic way of life. We strongly believe in the total development of the child - spiritually, academically, physically, and socially. St. Veronica School is committed to providing children with a caring, loving, environment where they will grow in faith and in knowledge. We acknowledge, with grateful appreciation, the contributions of our parishioners for without their total support and constant prayers, our school would not be possible.


Mission

Saint Veronica Parish School is a community of faithful who share in the common purpose of living, teaching and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. St. Veronica Parish School believes in the Christian approach to education that takes into consideration all facets of the individual: spiritual, physical, intellectual, moral and social.


Philosophy
   
As Catholics, we firmly believe that each of us is a unique individual made in the image and likeness of God. It is our firm belief that St. Veronica School through its philosophy of education can contribute much to help each student not only to attain his/her final goal of union with God, but also aid him/her in becoming the person that God intended him/her to be on earth. As a result, St. Veronica School believes in the Christian approach to education which takes into consideration all facets of the individual-spiritual, physical, mental, moral, and social. By this approach, St. Veronica School attempts to develop each student's full potential and, in turn, help the student form a positive self image. Christian education also attempts to form the human person in relationship with the other members of society. Through the teaching of Gospel values, St. Veronica School prepares the students to function as responsible stewards of God.

The curriculum which embraces a variety of religious and secular subjects is intended to develop responsible, decision-making individuals. St. Veronica School seeks to offer a broad based educational curriculum, striving to meet a standard of excellence in every subject, discipline, and opportunity presented to its students. The preparation of each student for the maximum benefit from his/her future educational experiences is a constant goal of faculty and staff.

The purpose of the Catholic school is to share in the three-fold mission of the church: to teach, to govern, and to sanctify. St. Veronica School strives to be an effective vehicle to accomplish this mission. Catholic doctrine is to be taught and witnessed through the lives of the faculty and staff, in order to create an atmosphere that fosters Christian values and is expressed through our community worship.
