Philosophy

St. Perpetua School is a Catholic educational community within St. Perpetua Parish. Clergy, administration, faculty and staff work in cooperation with parents and students to impart the Christian message and to pass on the history and traditions of the Catholic Church. Students are taught to view life according to the teachings of Jesus Christ while they are encouraged to develop a sense of social justice and a desire to serve others.

The faculty and staff work in partnership with parents, the primary educators, for the development of the whole child: spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Students experience the positive benefits of self-esteem, responsibility, discipline, and community in a secure, caring Christian atmosphere. They are challenged to attain their academic potential in an environment that promotes accountability, independence, leadership and a love of learning.

We believe each student, as a unique creation of God, has abilities to be developed and shared. We believe the goal of Catholic education is to support students as they move toward becoming life-long learners and competent future citizens.  St. Perpetua students are prepared to meet the challenges of our society through developing skills in accountability, independence, leadership, and scholarship.  Our mission statement drives the school's nurturing environment, which focuses on Catholic values and high academic standards.
