Beliefs

As Members of the St. Edmund Prep Community, we believe that:

 

Catholic Identity

  • Our faith, and the Catholic identity of our school, is at the core of everything we do.
  • By providing students with a faith-based value system, they will be able to develop a strong sense of self and a moral compass.
  • A family atmosphere provides a safe and respectful environment where students of diverse backgrounds are welcome.


Academic Success

  • Providing an atmosphere of direction and discipline will foster academic excellence.
  • All students can achieve academic success, educated according to his or her individual needs.
  • Academic success is the direct result of active participation in one’s own learning, where each student is taught to become a critical thinker, a problem solver, and a decision maker.


Commitment to the Individual

  • A varied extracurricular program complements the students’ academic course of study, enhancing their creative, technical, and athletic abilities.
  • All learn to respect the variety of cultures and attitudes that make for the richness of life.
  • The responsibility to educate and learn is shared among the faculty, administration, parents, and students.
  • Every individual is a vital part of the community and has a responsibility to give back to that community.
