About Us

PHILOSOPHY

 

The members of St. Peter Claver Regional Catholic School Community believe that the growth of the total child is the primary focus of any educational program. Catholic schools are the most effective means of meeting the foundational purposes of Catholic Christian education: to teach doctrine, to build community, to serve Christ and His people and to provide opportunities for worship.
 
We nurture in each student a sense of uniqueness—an awareness of his/her self-worth, self-esteem and God-given talents.  Each student is seen as an integral member of the total church, school, home and civic community.  Through a well-structured educational program, we strive to develop each child’s greatest individual potential.
 
The faculty of St. Peter Claver Regional Catholic School recognizes that the living out of this philosophy is possible only to the degree that we remain faithful to our baptismal commitment and to the degree that we rely on the power and strength of Jesus Christ, who has promised to remain with us for all time.
