At St. Laurence Catholic School, education is based on strong academics, development of social skills, encouraged interest in providing community service, and spiritual indoctrination into Christian values and teachings. St. Laurence Catholic School is committed to the trinity of parent, child, and educator working together to achieve these goals. A challenging academic atmosphere that places emphasis on the development of analytical skills will enable our students to become lifelong learners. By experiencing a firm, fair, and encouraging environment that recognizes individual learning differences, children will develop self-discipline, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-reliance.
Daily teaching of Catholic doctrine and weekly participation in worship allows Catholic Christian values to become an integral part of a child’s life. Children are encouraged to live as Jesus taught us to live and know they are loved as children of God. Community is the foundation upon which Christianity is built. Students are made aware of their role as members of the Catholic community through their daily experiences and interactions. They are encouraged to use their gifts and talents to help others through service.
Educators at St. Laurence Catholic School are encouraged to create a stimulating and nurturing classroom environment. Teachers are given ongoing opportunities to obtain continuing training in the latest instructional methods to meet the needs of our students. Every teacher at St. Laurence Catholic School receives training in Gifted and Talented education, as well as technology integration. At St. Laurence Catholic School, we believe that it should be the shared mission of the school and the parents to awaken the spiritual, intellectual, social, and creative gifts within each of our students. In doing so, we enable the children to reach their fullest potential and become responsible Christian citizens.
Every year we graduate over 70 students from all walks of life. They are tomorrow’s teachers, lawyers, doctors, businessmen and women, and members of religious orders. The solid Christian values and standards they are learning now will always be there to guide them through life’s ups and downs. They will always have their faith and spirituality to turn to when life gets tough. It is our privilege to welcome each of them into our school every day.
