FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK:
At St. Amelia School, we are all learners, servants, and leaders. These shared qualities are what make St. Amelia School work! They are what makes our school and its members succeed. We focus on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence, and dedication to service. These elements set us apart and are the primary reason why families make sacrifices to provide their children with a Catholic education.
The mission of St. Amelia School is to provide a quality Catholic education that instills in students the spirit of Jesus Christ in a positive, caring environment, and which allows students to achieve excellence and become responsible citizens in our community.
The Four Cornerstones of Our Mission:
- We Are Called To Grow (Knowledge) . . . Challenging curriculum designed to ensure not only a mastery of fundamentals, but also building creative, innovative problem-solving skills. Differentiated instruction to maximize individual growth and success. Extracurricular and enrichment opportunities created to develop leadership skills and to promote team-building.
- We Are Called To Live Our Catholic Faith (Faith) . . . Catholic faith, values and traditions are taught in the classroom, and modeled in daily school life. Weekly liturgical participation encourages students to develop a personal relationship with God, and provides a strong foundation for developing their Catholic identity. Sacramental preparation nourishes the faith development of both students and their families. Shared worship experiences engage and partner students with members of the parish community.
- We Are Called to Serve (Service) . . . School-wide and grade-level service projects integrate “giving back” as a core component of curriculum. Plentiful service opportunities, designed to promote social justice, help students build and practice their Catholic faith in the school, parish, community and the world. School service organizations and student-to-student mentoring opportunities encourage leadership and Christian conduct.
- We Are Called To Love (Character) . . . The “Eleventh Commandment” of Jesus to “Love one another just as I have loved you” expresses our core philosophy and guides us in our everyday activities. Nurturing staff, enthusiastic student body and involved parent community combine to reflect the light of Christ’s love to all who enter our school. Shared faith experience and commitment to Catholic education promote partnership between parents, students and faculty. Strong sense of family encourages cooperation, and creates a safe, comfortable environment where students can thrive.
At St. Amelia Catholic School, our parents, students, and teachers work together to create a positive learning environment for our children with the teachings of Jesus Christ as our central focus. Speaking on behalf of the teachers and staff of St. Amelia Catholic School, thank you for supporting our school of excellence.
