Mission Statement

A close, family environment allows Our Lady of Victory community to inform the mind and form the character, conscience, and Catholic faith of its students.

 

Philosophy

Our Lady of Victory School is a multi-ethnic Catholic elementary school where we foster in children a conscious awareness of the mystery and wonder of the ever-present God. Our children become aware that they belong to God’s kingdom as members of the Communion of Saints.

The faculty and staff of Our Lady of Victory School believe Catholic education addresses all facets of human development: spiritual, emotional, physical, academic, social, and cultural. We and the families, with parents as the primary educators, help form the children’s Christ-centered belief system. We teach the children, as active investors in their education, to realize that they are responsible for the shaping of their lives and for developing a faith-centered value system. It is through our continuing growth as a Eucharistic community that we are models of responsible, faith-filled living.

We are entrusted with the sacred mission of educating our young people. As a community of educators, we accept this challenge.
