Statements of Belief

  • We believe, as did our patron St. Francis De Sales, that you should not wish to be anything except who you are and strive to be that well; therefore, a Salesian gentleman manifests a profound respect for God, himself, and all others in a spirit of humility and gentleness.
  • We believe each student has the capacity to develop his unique God-given gifts to his fullest potential.
  • We believe our sacramental celebrations promote a sharing and building of our Christian faith community.
  • We believe the student who perseveres in the face of life’s challenges will succeed personally, professionally, and spiritually.
  • We believe parents, families, faculty, and other stakeholders work together to incorporate the ideals of caring , trust, and self-respect as we help our students reach and advance their goals.
  • We believe our faculty is committed to modeling life-long learning skills as we prepare students for post-secondary opportunities through rigorous and engaging 21st Century instruction.
  • We believe a willingness to consider, to change, and to implement new ideas and technologies is necessary for continuous growth.
  • We believe our collaborative community empowers students to become contributing and valued members of a global society.
  • We believe that, in an increasingly uncertain world, our core values will endure, providing our students with a sense of stability as they face challenges in the future.
  • We believe we will continue our tradition of success: Non Excidet! He shall not fail!
