As a Catholic school, we are committed to providing a strong Catholic identity through daily prayer, religious education, faith formation, activities focusing on the liturgical seasons and traditions of our faith. Our classrooms and school are enhanced with expressions of our Christian beliefs. Elements of a Catholic environment can be seen throughout the campus. Our faculty and parent community remain committed to our mission of "promoting a Christ-centered education with the highest moral and academic standards."
Each week, students in first through eighth grades participate in Holy Mass, celebrated by one of the priests from our seven supporting parishes. Pre-k and kindergarten students begin Mass participation more slowly, with a focus on learning proper participation in the liturgy. Our school liturgy is a beautiful, reverent celebration of the Mass, enhanced by student altar servers, readers, gift bearers, choir and cantors.
The religion curriculum is taught daily by a Catholic teacher and the basic tenets of our faith are integrated throughout our curriculum and school life. The curriculum is based on the religious education requirements of the Diocese of Austin and Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission. The curriculum includes knowledge and application of concepts regarding the sacraments of the Catholic Church, however students receive the sacraments of First Communion and First Reconciliation in their home parish. Participation in separate sacramental preparation classes through the parish is not required, however students and their families will usually be required to attend several meetings.
