Mission

St. Columba School exists to provide a Christ-centered environment wherein quality education helps each child grow in faith, knowledge, service and love of God.

 

PHILOSOPHY

We at Saint Columba School recognize the worth and dignity of each individual as a child of God.  Through daily examples of words and actions, we strive to guide all students to their fullest potential and to promote an atmosphere that encourages each child to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

The staff works with parent/guardians to build a solid foundation of Christian moral values, self-confidence, self-discipline and self-worth that will remain in each child throughout adult life.  We seek to instill the love of God and neighbor so that each child becomes an active contributor to Church and Community.

It is our goal to make the spiritual development and religious education of our students the school’s highest priority.  Our objectives are met by providing our students with opportunities that encourage the development of Christian morals and values on a daily basis.

 

 

Teachers serve as role models for the students by creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation, thereby promoting Christian values and morals.  The pattern of the relationship between students is one of seeing Christ in others through mutual respect and tolerance of differences.  It can be concluded that teachers, parent/guardians, and students work together to build a Christian community based on faith and trust in each other.

 

St. Columba School is accredited by the Commission of Elementary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
