Academy Philosophy & Mission

Mission Statement


 

Continuing the legacy of The Sisters of Saint Joseph, our mission at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Academy is to move with the Spirit to bring about God’s reign and seek to promote justice, to live lives of non-violence and to respond to the needs of our time – uniting all in God’s love. We believe it is our responsibility to recognize and develop the unique gifts of each child entrusted to us as we welcome children of all religions and cultures to our school community, and we reach out to them with understanding and respect.

Our vision is the preservation of our strong Christian environment and high academic standards – an environment that fosters the spiritual, academic, social, and physical development of the individual.

  • Spiritually, we deepen the awareness of God’s presence by helping our students know Jesus.  Our school stresses personal responsibility as well as concern for others. Programs and activities throughout the year encourage students to become involved in the loving service of others in need.
  • Academically, we adhere to the current standards set forth by New York State and the Diocese of Brooklyn.
  • The physical and social needs of our students are considered throughout the day based on their ages, to insure that we both challenge and attend to these important areas of development.

We will also continue to work conscientiously to realize our ideals in a community that are contemporary, enthusiastic, unbiased, and open to the future.
