Saint Susanna School works cooperatively with the family, the Church, and the community to provide all students with a foundation that will provide the cornerstone for their lives as they enter adulthood. This foundation involves three aspects:
FAITH: A spiritual foundation which seeks to reach a goal that finds that each student:
• is knowledgeable of the rites, traditions, and history of the Catholic Faith.
• understands his or her responsibility to service in the faith community.
• continues to seek a relationship with her or his God through prayer.
• chooses freely to answer the call to discipleship in the world.
VALUES: A civil foundation which seeks to reach a goal that finds that each student:
• accepts responsibility for developing a community, a city, and a world in which all people are treated with fairness and compassion.
• exercise his or her rights as a citizen of this country.
EXCELLENCE: An academic foundation which seeks to reach a goal that finds that each student:
• realizes that learning and personal development is an ongoing process.
• recognizes his or her own giftedness and talents.
The Catholic Identity of Saint Susanna School ensures the faith formation of its students. Saint Susanna School strives to instill in students a belief in themselves. Faculty and staff believe that all students are in school to learn. This belief causes teachers to challenge students according to their abilities. Students responding favorably to these challenges discover their abilities, strive to increase their performance, and seek even greater challenges.
The purpose of Saint Susanna School is total Catholic Education
for all students regardless of race, socio-economic status, or ability.
Together with parents, parish, and community, we strive to educate
the whole child through the process of Christ-centered learning.
Faith, Values, and Excellence is the driving force behind our vision of the Saint Susanna Family.
Our students will learn in a school where Christ is the center of our classrooms,
and the Catholic faith and values are modeled by all members of our staff.
Saint Susanna School will prepare our students to embrace the demands of a diverse and ever-changing society
with a foundation firmly rooted in the values of our Catholic faith.
