St. John Bosco Schools

 

“The goal of education is the student himself, to form his mind and his character in such a way that he can live his whole life, so far as possible, in a way that is consistent with the truth about himself as a human being created in the image and likeness of God." ~ The St. Jerome Curriculum Group

 

Classical liberal arts education lays the foundation that leads to wisdom and virtue.  Wisdom is to know the truth; virtue, to imitate the truth. Through this formation, children begin to connect what they know with how they live, to strive for excellence and holiness.

Our Mission

The mission of St. John Bosco Schools is to support parents in their God-given role as the primary educators of their children by cultivating the whole person—mind, body, and soul—uniting spiritual life with work, study, and play.

Our Vision

St. John Bosco Schools was established to grow into a network of schools that provide an authentically Catholic education. We firmly believe that a rigorous, faith-based education and vibrant Catholic culture should be within reach of all parents who seek this formation for their children.

St. John Bosco Schools’ integrated curriculum:

Cultivates wonder, formation in virtue, and nurtures the moral imagination

Allows children to explore ideas, events, and individuals in the context of the history of Western civilization

Encourages children to draw connections between different subjects, leading them to understand holistically

Inspires children by immersing them in the truth, beauty, and goodness of God’s creation

Teaches children how to think deeply and express ideas in an organized and precise way

 

At St. John Bosco School, our students learn that all our efforts are a response to the great love that Jesus demonstrated for us on the Cross.   We embrace the teachings of the Catholic Church as our guide to living God’s will with the joy of Christian hope.  Priority is given to helping each child develop a personal relationship with Our Lord.   Students grow to understand the power of prayer and the grace of the Sacraments in helping them bring the light of Christ into the world.

Our Catholic identity extends beyond attendance at Mass and the recitation of prayers.  It permeates every dimension of life at the school, from the commitment to excellence and service to others, to the orderliness of the environment, to the dress of students, to the general cheerfulness of the faculty and staff.
