Mission Statement of Catholic Schools

The Mission of Catholic Schools in the Rockford Diocese is to ensure that the person of Jesus Christ is proclaimed, learned, experienced and lived by students in their homes, their classrooms, their parishes, and in their communities at large. We pursue the development of the whole child through spiritual, academic, and physical formation; working together with parents, clergy, and parish communities. The ultimate goal of the educational process is to form dynamic, responsible and service-oriented adult Catholics who participate fully in the sacramental life of the Church and are empowered by their love for God and desire for eternal salvation.
