Responding to Christ’s call to go and make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28:18), St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy’s mission is to educate and inspire young men and women to love God, seek Truth, pursue excellence, and transform the world as excellent Catholic scholars and faithful disciples of Jesus.
Our Root Beliefs
At St. Rose of Lima we believe that:
- We are disciples sent into the world.
- We are not passengers, we are crew.
- We are always learning.
- We follow in the footsteps of a man who changed a few fishes and loaves into a meal for thousands.
Our Shared Purpose
Above all else, our goal is to support the primary educators of our children in forming excellent Catholic scholars and faithful disciples of Jesus
St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy’s vision is for all of our students to go to college and get to heaven.
At St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy, our mission, beliefs, purpose, and vision are all born out of a deep desire to serve the Church in her duty to educate and,
“the responsibility of announcing the way of salvation of all men, of communicating the life of Christ to those who believe, and, in her unfailing solicitude, of assisting men to be able to come to the fullness of this life,” (Gravissimum Educationis #3).
At the heart of our service to the Church as a Catholic school is the fundamental understanding that parents are the, “principal and primary educators of their children,” who have received, “the responsibility and privilege of evangelizing their children,” (CCC #2225). We are taught our families are called to be domestic churches where children come to know and love God, grow in virtue and holiness, and discover their God given vocation. To them is given the great task of announcing the way of salvation.
We know we cannot replace the primary educators, for as the Church teaches, “The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute,” (CCC #2221). Our mission as a Catholic school therefore, is to be an extension of the domestic church, partners with and supports for the primary educators whose mission it is to form saints. It is our great privilege to serve the Church therefore, by serving the family and helping parents in the labor of forming excellent Catholic scholars and faithful followers of Jesus.
