St John The Baptist School is a Christ-centered Catholic community working together with the primary educators, the parents, to empower each child with the ability to make informed decisions as a capable, connected, and contributing citizen, through the development of respect, responsibility, and concern for others. The goal of Catholic Education at St. John the Baptist School is to develop persons of mature potential, capable of achieving their destiny with God. We aim to enable the children to develop a hope-filled relationship with the Father and Jesus, in the Holy Spirit. We believe that this can be achieved as the children grow in Christian attitudes through study, experience, and good example. As a school engaged in the Catholic Educational System, we accept this as our goal, and further believe that all persons of whatever race, condition, and age, are endowed with dignity and have the inalienable right to an education suited to their native talents, sex, cultural background and ancestral heritage. 1 We believe that it is the role of the Catholic School to assist the primary and secondary educational agencies the family, the Church, and the state in the physical, social, emotional intellectual, moral, aesthetical, and spiritual development of the children. We also consider it to be our obligation to make use of all facilities and agencies available to us to aid in the education of the children in our school.
