St. Martha Catholic School Philosophy
We acknowledgethat parents are the primary educators of their children. Through collaborative efforts between the home, school, and parish communities, a positive atmosphere is created for each student to grow with the Gospel messages. The core purpose is the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, cultural, and physical development of our students.
We believe that as an integral ministry of the faith community of St. Martha Catholic Parish, learners follow religious truths and live Catholic values and ethics. St. Martha Catholic School promotes a setting “Where Faith and Knowledge Meet” as students develop a personal relationship with Christ and come to know Him as their Model.
We believethat a solid foundation of educational skills following the Archdiocesan curriculum provides educational and spiritual experiences for students to grow and become successful, active, lifelong learners. The learning environment emphasizes the importance of self-confidence, respect, self-discipline, and responsibility as each person cultivates God’s gifts of mind, heart, and spirit.
We believethat an educational program within an ordered, safe, caring, and disciplined environment, based on Catholic teachings and values enables each child to grow in better understanding of self in relationship to God and others. Students are then encouraged to go beyond self and become aware of the needs of others as Jesus did and learn to serve in the larger community.
