Describe how faith/Catholic identity is modeled in your school:
The specific purpose of a Catholic education is the formation of boys and girls who will be good citizens of this world, loving God and neighbor, and enriching society with the leaven of the Gospel. Our educators, administrators, parents and pastors guide the school in making choices that promote “overcoming individualistic self-promotion, solidarity instead of competition, assisting the weak instead of marginalization and responsible participation instead of indifference.”
