St. Robert School Mission Statement

The students, faculty, staff, parents and community of St. Robert School are committed to creating a caring Catholic environment, which fosters and implements a Christ-centered and up-to-date academic program. Our vision is for all students to experience the rewards of positive self-esteem, self-discipline, respect for others and a true sense of community spirit as they develop their skills as Respectful Christians, Effective Communicators, Accountable Citizens, and Lifelong Learners.

Philosophy

We at St. Robert School acknowledge that we are called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the children who have been placed in our trust. Therefore, we in cooperation with the parents, whom we consider the primary educators of our students, are dedicated to providing our children with a viable, complete, and comprehensive Catholic education.

This education enables our students to learn the message of our faith, whereby God reveals God’s self to all people and unfolds the mystery of our salvation. We teach this message not as a lesson to be learned, but a lesson to be lived. We endeavor to provide our pupils with opportunities to develop a personal relationship with Christ. We understand our call to the ministry of education, and we seek to teach as Jesus taught.

Our education challenges our students to understand their roles as contributors to each community to which they belong. At St. Robert School, we teach community by experiencing it. We believe that the feeling of belonging to a community leads to a sense of service. Our education encourages our students to recognize their call to grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially so that through their personal growth they may better serve the members of God’s family.
