Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote respect for self, others and the environment in a safe and supportive Catholic learning community that fosters discovery and the development of each student’s unique spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual potential.

 

Our Vision

​We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and that their partnership with St. Mark School indicates their commitment to the values of Catholic education in the twenty-first century. By promoting a Christ-centered environment, teachers, students, and the larger community work cooperatively and creatively, engendering respect for the individual and the group. We are committed to provide an atmosphere in which children develop a love of learning and see themselves as agents of change in the world.

 

Philosophy

We, the community of Saint Mark School, guided by our Catholic faith, promote the growth and education of the whole child - spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical. We strive to help each student realize their own unique gifts and talents and to develop a personal relationship with God through the study of our Catholic faith and participation in the Sacraments and service to the community.​
