GOALS OF CATHOLIC SCHOOLS
The goals of Catholic Schools, message, community, service and worship are consonant with those expressed in To Teach as Jesus Did (1973). Catholic schools are to make “faith become living, conscious, and active, through the light of instruction” (1973). Primarily, Catholic schools are delegated to further the command of Jesus “to teach all nations”.
To teach the children is to present Jesus’ “good news”, the gospel message in word and examples. Children are instructed in Catholic doctrine, values and moral standards.
The religious and academic message is experienced in community shared by the people of the school environment and expanded in service to the broader local and civic community.
Worship and celebration are means of offering thanks and praise to God that has gifted people with freedom to grow and develop in a global world of complex, multiple realities and values.
Catholic schools are teaching/learning environments in which the needs of students are addressed. The instructional process is based on the belief that all children can learn. Therefore, teachers and administrators collaborate with parents to provide learning experiences consonant with student ability and financial resources
BSS is developing an innovated approach to learning with a STREAM focused approach to instruction.
