SJDR Mission

Mission Statement San Juan del Rio Catholic school, a ministry of the parish community, walks with children and their families, providing them sound faith formation and a challenging academic program, as they journey in faith, grow in learning, and develop their relationship with Jesus.

We believe that the purpose of Catholic education as defined in the Pastoral letter of Catholic Bishops is to evangelize the Gospel message, to foster growth of our faith, to worship as a community of believers, and to be of service to the church and all of humankind.

We believe that San Juan del Rio Catholic School is a ministry of the parish, and provides children the fullest and best opportunity to learn about Jesus and to be formed in their Catholic faith.

We believe in ministering to the whole family and providing support to the parents who are the primary educators of their children.

We believe that every person is created in the image and likeness of God; therefore, every child is entitled to respect, care, and compassion as a unique child of God.

We believe that as ministers, it is our responsibility to uphold and model Catholic traditions to assist our students in developing a personal relationship with Jesus.

We believe that we are called to educate the whole child spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially based on Gospel values and Catholic faith traditions.

We believe that every child has unique learning needs and should be afforded the same opportunities of academic excellence in order to be challenged to achieve his/her potential.

We believe that we should serve as catalysts to position children by expanding their ability to solve a broad array of challenges, through the use of higher level thinking, considering various perspectives, and utilizing current technology.
