Defining Features of Catholic Schools

The defining features communicate clearly what we believe is at the heart of Catholic education and give direction and guidance to those whose daily interactions with others bring to life the vision of an authentic Catholic school as living out the Gospel message.

Catholic schools have a special and vital role in the Church’s mission in education; through providing a learning environment that is spiritually nurturing, intellectually challenging and emotionally caring. Catholic school communities will continue to provide support to lifelong learners so that they will be able and willing to envision and contribute to the creation of a just, equitable and compassionate world.
