Approach


The mission of St. John Fisher School, a Catholic Community, is to partner with the family in educating and developing the whole child.

 

Philosophy

In the spirit of its Mission Statement, St. John Fisher School will:

  • foster a Catholic community in which worship, Holy Mass, prayer and service is a natural response to our faith that will prepare each child to take a Christ-like role in society.
  • plan and provide quality, student-centered, academic environment that encourages each child to develop as an engaged learner.
  • partner with the family, the primary educators of their children, to develop skills in preparation for life.
  • promote a sense of personal integrity, responsibility, and independence that further develops each child’s God-given talents.
