Philosophy of Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy

  

Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy parochial co-educational school, which seeks to provide a quality education for its students. The school assists them in growing in all aspects of their whole being, i.e. the physical, intellectual, moral, social, emotional, and spiritual.

The primary mission of Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy is to teach the message of Jesus and to implant in the students the values He taught. Through a variety of religious and non-religious experiences, we strive to develop students of good conscience who can make proper moral choices both in today’s world and in the future.

The academic goal of Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy is to educate children so that they are able to take their rightful places in a rapidly changing society.

Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy implements accepted educational theories and practices in planning for the intellectual development of all students at all grade levels. The school adheres to both local and state guidelines.

The personal development of students at Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy is the sum total of their life experiences. Recognizing that the mind, body, and spirit are interrelated, we seek to provide a comprehensive program of character education as well as basic classroom education to foster the total development of the child.

The staff attempts to provide a safe and secure environment.

The social development of students incorporates the values given us by Catholic tradition and the accepted values of American society. Students are taught to understand the need for rules and guidelines of behavior so that they may function successfully within the various authority systems, in which they do and will live.

The development of students into committed Catholics, while at the same time respecting the religious beliefs and practices of non-Catholic students, is a priority of the parish staff, administration, and faculty. There is an integration of religious instruction and experiences into all phases of the students’ daily schedule.

The goal for each student is to see him/her graduate from Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy with the following instilled characteristics: love of God and neighbor, ability to know right from wrong and make good moral judgments, and the knowledge needed to be able to successfully function in today’s ever-changing world.
