•The school offers all its members opportunities for direct service and advocacy and instills a life-long commitment to service.
•The school is linked in a reciprocal manner with ministries among people who are poor, marginalized and suffering from injustice.
•In our multicultural world, the school prepares and inspires students to be active, informed, and responsible citizens locally, nationally, and globally.
•The school teaches respect for creation and prepares students to be stewards of the earth's resources.
