PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
Notre Dame Catholic School, in the Diocese of Fort Worth, strives to offer to each student a moral, physical, cultural, intellectual, and social, as well as spiritual, foundation upon which to build a child of God. The school assists parents in the education of their children by helping each student to develop personal faith, knowledge, skills, competence, and behavior patterns to live a full Christian life as a responsible member of the community. The school recognizes the rights of individuals as children of God, who deserve honor and respect, and gives them guidance through teachers who are professionally competent and morally exemplary. Notre Dame provides an intellectually stimulating atmosphere in which students can investigate a broad educational spectrum within a framework of traditional Christian practices and values.
The spiritual dimension is integrated in the four-fold responsibility of proclaiming the message revealed by Jesus in word and deed, manifesting through worship the outward sign of Christian duty, building community through fulfilling the Gospel call to fellowship and social justice, and giving service to all persons through sharing spiritual and temporal goods with those in need. The Spiritual dimension is our primary focus.
An intellectual atmosphere is provided through a comprehensive offering of experiences to prepare students to cope with societal demands and to appreciate the worth of each person and culture.The physical dimension is met through programs that enable students to acquire the knowledge and understanding of factors that affect one’s being.
