Our Philosophy and Goals


[A] true education aims at the formation of the human person both with respect to his [/her] ultimate goal and at the same time with respect to the good of those societies of which as a human being he [/she] is a member and in whose responsibilities he [/she] will, as an adult, have a share.” (Pope Paul VI. “Declaration on Christian Education — Gravissimum Educationis.” Vatican: the Holy See. Rome, 28 Oct. 1965.)
