STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY:
The purpose of St. Hilary School is to create a Christian educational community where a quality Catholic education is offered in an atmosphere enriched by Christian values and beliefs, sound and realistic discipline, and the dedication and concern of a qualified staff.
We have set our goals and organized our total curriculum to achieve this purpose. Underlying all our efforts to attain these goals is the belief that each of our students is a unique child of God. Our endeavor is to help them realize their God-given potential to its fullest. Only by working together-teachers, students and parents-can those goals be reached.
-To develop our students’ understanding of and loyalty to the teachings and heritage of the Roman Catholic faith, help them to acquire Catholic moral and spiritual values, and provide them with opportunities for prayer and worship.
-To foster our students’ understanding of human knowledge and culture in this technologically advanced world, encourage their powers to reason independently, solve problems, be creative and to accept responsibility for self-evaluation and continued self instruction.
-To help our students acquire a sense of respect and responsibility for themselves, their home, church, school, community and country.
