Faith Foundation

St. Philomene School integrates the Catholic faith into all aspects of school life. This Christian foundation presents itself in many ways:

  • Regular opportunities for the school community to experience prayer and the Sacraments.
  • Obvious and visible signs, sacramentals, traditions and rituals of the Catholic Church exist throughout the school.
  • Authentic Catholic teachings, which include a curriculum infused with Catholic values throughout the academic subjects.
  • Ongoing formation of teachers for catechetical and instructional competencies.
  • Emphasis on partnership with parents―as the primary educators of their children― with fundamental concern in their spiritual and academic education.
  • Service-orientation fostered among students.
  • All staff members are actively engaged and committed to bringing the Gospel into the total educational experience.
