Our Mission Statement:
With Mary, “the first disciple of her son” (Redemptoris Mater, 20), Queen of Apostles Catholic School is rooted in faith, excellence, and joy. We flourish by embracing our call to holiness, advancing in virtue and academics, and cultivating the many talents God has given us.
Philosophy of Education:
At Queen of Apostles Catholic School, we recognize the uniqueness of each student as a child of God. Assisting parents in their role as primary educators, we form the whole child: spiritually, morally, intellectually, and physically. Students from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, united as one body in Christ, come together to learn with and from one another.
Theology, as the queen of the sciences, is the lens through which we see everything. All subjects are ordered toward a deeper understanding of God and the world that He has created. We inspire our students to seek truth, love goodness, and delight in beauty.
Responding to Christ’s call to evangelize, we instruct our students in the mysteries of the faith as revealed by God, in fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
We immerse our students in both timeless and modern works of literature that instill wisdom, awe and wonder — stories that form the imagination, exemplify heroic virtue, and steer the child to the path of sainthood. We promote appreciation of the beauty of nature and of the great works of art, music, and drama.
We foster active learning through a rigorous curriculum and high standards, differentiated instruction, cross-curricular connections, and multi-sensory activities.
We recognize the importance of technology in today’s world and we employ technology prudently in the classroom. Monitored by faculty, students are taught to be technologically literate and, most importantly, to use this great tool in a safe and ethical manner.
Our faculty members understand the vocational character of teaching, motivated by love for Christ the Teacher. Christian charity animates a culture in which creativity and love for learning are complemented by self-discipline and respect. Students learn to treat others in accord with their dignity as persons made in the image and likeness of God. We nourish their friendship with Christ through prayer and encourage frequent reception of the sacraments. Furthermore, we facilitate opportunities for service, leadership, and student initiative.
“Catholic education is above all a question of communicating Christ, of helping to form Christ in the lives of others…” Message of John Paul II to the National Catholic Educational Association of the United States, April 16, 1979.
