Philosophy of Education

Saint Clement Catholic School Educational Philosophy

We, the Saint Clement School Community, believe Catholic education is one of the most important ways by which The Church fulfills its commitment to recognize the dignity of each person and to build a Catholic Christian community. We hear in Jesus’ words, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full,” (John 10:10) a challenge to provide the best education possible to our children. We are dedicated, therefore, to work with the parents, the primary educators, to see that each child develops his or her spiritual, intellectual, social, psychological, and physical abilities. By integrating the truths taught by Christ, we establish a school climate that provides the students with instruction and experiences that will allow them to accomplish Saint Clement’s Pillars and Student Learning Expectations (SLEs) of FAITH, COMMUNITY, and EXCELLENCE.
