ABOUT

We believe that:

  • Jesus Christ is our focus and foundation.

  • Each person is created in the image and likeness of God and therefore has innate worth.

  • The school community is called to implement and witness Christ’s teachings.

  • Parents, as primary educators, are integral to the educational process.

  • Integrity and personal responsibility are essential for students, parents and school staff.

  • The health, well-being, and safety of every student are necessary for a productive learning environment.

  • Students learn and benefit from a variety of teaching methods.

  • Learning is a life-long process for all members of the McDevitt community.

  • All students have the ability to become successful and productive members of society.

  • Extra-curricular activities complement classroom education in the development of well-rounded individuals.

  • Service to others empowers students to contribute to the community by sharing their gifts and talents.
