FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What made you start this new school?
Rev. Mother Carina Maris and Sr. Regina have a deep love for all of God's children regardless of their economic status, social and academic challenges.  As educators for over decades, the Sisters have longed to assist all children reach their potentials but there are many obstacles. Most of these students need nurture which takes time, talent and treasure to accomplish. They are moved with compassion to make a difference in the lives of these students. High percentages of these students' families cannot afford the traditional cost of private school education, so the Lord put it in their heart to open their own school so as to make themselves available to all students regardless of their needs. The school offers small class sizes and a rigorous, technology driven curriculum to all students. Return to Top
What makes your school more desirable than others in the area? There are so many choices these days...
We focus on educating the whole child in a small classroom setting: intellectually, spiritually and physically.  Our small class size of 15 students or less per grade helps us to focus on the individual needs of your child to ensure that we are teaching to their academic and emotional abilities. We attend to every student's need. We teach what other private schools are not teaching. These schools work to remedy the problem BUT we prevent the problem before it hampers the student's success. For instance, other schools try to address bullying, we teach character education which stresses on peer mediation and conflict resolution; thereby, providing the students with the social skills they need to function successfully within their environment.
