St. Christopher School strives to recognize the uniqueness of the individual in a total Christian environment. We aspire to offer a holistic approach to learning - body, mind, and spirit. The nucleus of our program is dedicated to the principles of Catholic education with emphasis on the values of honesty, respect, and a concern for learning. We endeavor to encourage young people to appreciate these values and to apply them by keeping their roots in the past and their sights on their future.
The philosophy of St. Christopher School is based on the recognition of the dignity of the human person, a unique individual made to the image of God and destined for eternal life. In conformity with this basic principle of Catholic education, St. Christopher School places religious instruction and religious worship at the center of its program of studies and activities, and strives to provide a total environment which will enable its students to develop as full Christians.
Furthermore, the school is dedicated to the principles of justice and democracy, and endeavors to develop students who contribute to the welfare of their nation as active and concerned citizens. Cognizant of the fact that life requires discipline, opportunities are provided for the growth of the self-discipline of every student.
St. Christopher School aims at developing young men and women who expect and appreciate the values of honesty, respect, and concern for learning, and will use these qualities for the good of others. Realizing that we are educating leaders and decision-makers for the 21st century, we are attempting to create a contemporary philosophy of Catholic education, within budgetary constraints, which keeps its roots in the past, and its sights on the future.
As stated by the National Congress on Catholic Schools for the 21st Century, "we will strive to educate students to meet the intellectual, social and ethical challenges of living in a technological and global society".
