Catholic Identity

“Be it known to all who enter here that Jesus Christ is the reason for our schools to exist. He is the ever-present teacher, the model of the about usfaculties, and the inspiration of its students.”

The American Bishops, in their monumental document on education, To Teach as Jesus Did stressed that the means for placing Jesus at the center of our schools is through

1. Proclaiming the MESSAGE of Jesus
2. Building and living COMMUNITY
3. Developing attitudes and practices of SERVICE
4. Promoting PRAYER and WORSHIP

St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Elementary School provides an environment where Catholic dogma, values and the spirit of faith permeate the total school community.

Students are offered opportunities for daily prayer, celebrations of the liturgical year (Advent, Lent, the Paschal Season, devotions to the Blessed Mother), and the reception of the Holy Eucharist at mass.

Service projects, social justice activities, and pro-life programs are other expressions of the faith life of the school.
