Organizational Values

  • We are faith-based – a private Catholic school founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame based on their philosophy of enabling persons to reach the fullness of their potential as individuals created in God’s image and assisting them in using their gifts to the best of their ability.
  • We serve the mild to moderate intellectually disabled for whom this education is appropriate.
  • We are committed to providing financial assistance based on availability of funding to those in need.
  • We believe in the philosophy of inclusion demonstrated through activities to enhance interactions with the broader community.
