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 in which emphasis is placed on the development of analytical skills will enable our children to become lifelong learners. By experiencing a firm, fair, and encouraging environment that recognizes individual learning differences, students will develop self-discipline, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-reliance.
Daily teaching of Catholic doctrine and weekly participation in worship allows Christian values to become an integral part of a child’s life. Children will be encouraged to live as Jesus taught us to live, and know that they are loved as children of God.
Community is the foundation upon which Christianity is built. Students will be made aware of their role as members of the Christian community through their daily experiences and interactions. They will be encouraged to use their gifts and talents to help others through service.
Educators at St. Laurence will be encouraged to create a stimulating and nurturing classroom environment. Teachers will be given ongoing opportunities to obtain continuing training in the latest instructional methods to meet the needs of our students.
It is our belief that it should be the shared mission of the school and the parents to awaken within our children their spiritual, intellectual, social, and creative gifts. This will enable the children to reach their fullest potential and become responsible Christian citizens.
