Foreword


St. Joan of Arc School shall be administered according to an adopted Catholic philosophy of education and statement of goals which reflect the philosophy for education by the Diocese of Toledo, the educational standards for the State of Ohio, and the local identity of the parish community. The philosophy, goals, and policies contained in this handbook shall be reviewed on a regular basis.

Philosophy

The Christian philosophy of St. Joan of Arc School emphasizes the strong conviction that Catholic Schools make a vital contribution to the teaching mission entrusted by Jesus to the people. As religious educators, we recognize our responsibility and privilege to assist parents in educating their children to grow in understanding, love, and reverence for God, themselves, and others. Gospel values based on charity, respect, trust, personal responsibility, and social concern are integrated into the instructional programs and school atmosphere.

We are committed to academic excellence appropriate to the individual needs, skills, and abilities of each student. Guided by Christian wisdom, our educational efforts prepare students to become contributing, mature members of the Church and responsible citizens in an ever-changing society.

In a faith filled community, students, faculty, and staff experience frequent prayer and worship as all members are guided toward pursuit of the ultimate goal of eternal happiness with God.
