Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

In partnership with parents as the primary educators of their children, St. Vincent de Paul School empowers its students by providing them with a quality Catholic education. The school inspires its students to live and deepen their faith, with a focus on the Gospel message that motivates them to respond to the needs of others. Students are encouraged to face with confidence the spiritual, academic, and social challenges of life from a Catholic world view.
