Catholic Schools

Mission and Vision

Dedicated to a Vision

                Share the Spirit! The fundamental purpose of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus the Christ. His news is one of challenge, love, and unity. His spirit is caught in the lives of students. Affirming that parents are the primary educators and partners of education, we prepare students to share the spirit of Jesus through community building, Christian acts of service, and word and worship. We commit to provide inspiring active learning and quality education so that all students share the Spirit of Catholic Education. The Vision Statement calls forth core beliefs that affirm the missionary dynamics of all Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

Foster a Catholic Identity

We prepare students to encounter the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to bring Catholic teachings and values into their lives and the global world.

Invest in Community Building

We are committed to building a communal spirit that is the heart and reality of the Christian formation.

Provide Quality Education

We teach knowledge and critical skills so that students function fully as citizens within a changing technological and multicultural community.

Encourage Moral Formation

Appreciate Families

We recognize the family as the basic faith community in which all members share as active participants in the educational process.

Support Parish Life

Share Governance

Seek Equitable Distribution
