The Catholic School Difference
Catholic Identity- We believe our Catholic schools are an expression of the Church's mission, and we are committed to an educational environment that is faithful to Church teachings and rich in the cherished traditions and liturgical practices of our faith.
Quality Catholic Education-We are committed to providing an academically rigorous and doctrinally sound program of education and faith formation, where faith and knowledge are intertwined in all areas of school life.
Student Success-We support parents as the primary educators of their children and collaborate with them in forming young people who are equipped to live moral, upright, and successful lives through Christian discipleship, serving as role models and active participants in our Church and nation. We are proud of our highly engaged and effective teachers, the family involvement and the sense of community at Stella Maris Academy, all factors important for student success.
Accessibility-We strive to make our Catholic schools available, accessible, and affordable to all Catholic parents and their children, as well as to others who desire a Catholic school education.
School Advancement-We call on the entire Catholic community to share in the financial responsibility for Catholic education as an integral part of the Church's mission, thus enabling our schools to expand enrollment and educational opportunities through continued emphasis on: quality programs, highly qualified and professional teachers and staff, well maintained facilities, and long-term sustainability.
