Integrating Faith into Life through Service 

At Catholic schools, knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith are incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum. A key component of this approach is providing the link between Catholic social teaching and service which integrates those teachings into the students' daily lives through age-appropriate service projects.
