PHILOSOPHY

St. Veronica Catholic School is committed to the education of the whole person based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.  We promote and sustain the spiritual, moral, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth of each student.

 

In partnership with the family, the primary educator, and in collaboration with the parish community, we strive to provide a quality education centered in a Catholic environment of peace, security, and love.

 

We enable students to live their faith; become open, honest, and effective communicators; achieve their goals as active members of the community; and become responsible, lifelong learners.
