Mission Statement:

The Madeleine School, a ministry of the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, is a faith-filled Catholic community committed to nurturing the growth of the whole child and furthering the reign of God. All are welcome.

Philosophy Statement:

We believe Catholic education is a ministry entrusted by Christ to his Church to build the Kingdom of God.

We nurture the spirituality of our community through prayer, service, and study in order to deepen each person’s relationship with God.

We build community based on love, understanding, and respect for the dignity of all people as modeled by Jesus Christ.

We challenge our students to achieve academic excellence through a holistic curriculum that empowers them with knowledge, skills, and self-discipline.

We collaborate with parents, the primary educators, to prepare our children to embrace life’s opportunities and to live a life of Christian service.

We commit to discovering and developing the unique gifts of our students as they contribute to building the Body of Christ.
