Mission and Vision of the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford

Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford welcome students of all faiths, ethnic groups and socio-economic backgrounds.

The fundamental purpose of Catholic schools is to:

  • Provide a safe, nurturing and secure environment in which students encounter the living God, who in Jesus Christ, reveals His transforming love and truth;
  • Partner with parents to support students in their learning and in their search for knowledge, meaning, and truth;
  • Create a Catholic climate that contributes to the formation of students as active participants in the parish community;
  • Foster a culture of educational excellence through critical thinking skills, innovation and rigorous curriculum standards, a global perspective, and an emphasis on moral education, community, and service;
  • Promote life-long learning that advances the development of the whole person – mind, body, and soul;
  • and Graduate students prepared to become productive, virtuous citizens and church leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world.

The above statement was formulated and recommended by the Archdiocesan School Board (2011), approved by the Archbishop (2011), and is implemented by the Superintendent of Catholic Schools and all Catholic school constituents.
