Mission, Philosophy & Goals
Immaculate Conception Catholic School, following the example of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, develops the whole child, instills Gospel values, inspires a love of learning, and
promotes academic excellence in a diverse nurturing community.
Statement of Philosophy
We believe that each child is a person of worth with a personal dignity and a heavenly calling since each child is so loved by God that He sent His Son to save each one. To safeguard this dignity requires the education of the whole person - spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically.
We believe that the hallmark of quality education is learning and the appreciation of learning. Therefore, the teachers and the administrators of the Immaculate Conception Catholic School, in partnership with the parents, pledge themselves to achieve and maintain professional and personal excellence in order to share knowledge, develop useful skills, teach Catholic doctrine, and instill a high Christian value system that reflects Christ-like attitudes.
With its wide scope of academic subjects, church and community service projects, liturgical celebrations, organizations, and athletic activities, the Immaculate Conception Catholic School seeks to develop in each student a love for God, a respect for all God's creatures, and a thirst for knowledge that will prepare him/her to be the Christian citizen of tomorrow.
