The ministry of Catholic education in general is the fulfillment of the educational mission of the Catholic Church, and has as its primary goal the continuous formation of the Christian person.
St. Catherine's Montessori is an environment in which students can experience the presence of God in a unique way. Its focus is on the individual person's spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, cultural, and physical development. In our school, students and teachers proclaim the Gospel message, unite in worship, respond to the needs of the community through fellowship and social justice, and serve others through the sharing of their spiritual gifts and temporal goods.
Our philosophy is an extension of Dr. Maria Montessori's educational dream: "To the young child we give guides to the world and the possibility to explore it through free activity; to the older child we give the cosmos, and a clear vision of how the cosmic energies act in the creation and maintenance of our globe." Cosmic education relates children and adolescents to the universe, enabling them to understand the law and order underlying its existence and to realize in themselves all the developmental potential that is their birthright.
