"The educational tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart aims to form competent, caring and faith-filled men who generously serve their families, communities and church. It is a proven formula that allows boys to thrive as they mature into their full potential as men and leaders."
Gene Tullier/President/Catholic High School
The Catholic High School tradition involves an apostolate espousing a holistic approach to education rooted in religious values, structured through friendly discipline, nurtured by personal attention and committed to academic excellence.
The educational charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart
is a unique gift from the Holy Spirit provided for the building of the Kingdom of God through the evangelization of youth. As colleagues in schools conducted according to this charism, we inherit a tradition of quality Catholic education. This tradition stems from the religious commitment, personal dedication, and professional competence of the many Brothers who have devoted themselves to the education of youth. Our tradition in education has developed as each generation of teachers has learned the lessons of experience from previous generations.
While our philosophy and teaching methods share many aspects in common with all of Catholic education, particularly Catholic education directed by religious communities, over the years we have developed a basic educational philosophy and fundamental pedagogical techniques which have become our hallmark. This educational charism is lived out in the attitudes, values, and practices that we have traditionally emphasized. We value our heritage and wish it to continue to play a major part in the role of Catholic education in the future.
We believe in a holistic approach to education. We believe that a young person learns from his or her total experience of the school setting. We attempt to address the religious, academic, social, psychological, physical and cultural development of the young person through the school's programs, courses and policies.
Because we believe that a student learns through his or her experience of the total school environment, we devote ourselves to build within the school a community spirit that is characterized by a pervading influence of Christian values, a strong insistence on an orderly and disciplined atmosphere, a personal approach to education, and a firm commitment to academic excellence.
