Embracing the Catholic Traditions: A Strategic Plan for Our Future 2010-2016
This is what God asks of you, only this:To act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
The prophet Micah reminds us that we have been greatly blessed by a generous and loving God, a God who has gifted our school community with the talent to work together to develop a framework for Incarnation School’s approach to our future and that of our Church. In return, our God asks us “to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly” with Him on our faith journey. As members of a strong Christian community, confident in our relationship with God and one another, we are able to rise to this challenge and become beacons of light for the world community. The following Vision, Mission, and Belief Statements of Incarnation Catholic School reflect our commitment to live up to these expectations, so simply stated by Micah many years ago.
Incarnation Catholic School will be a nationally recognized model program in faith formation and high academic standards and achievement for our children.
Incarnation Catholic School provides a spiritually and academically rich environment in which all are encouraged to grow in faith as they follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
We believe that the community of Incarnation Catholic School . . .
1. . . . exists as a nurturing, safe, learning environment, which is immersed in Catholic traditions, and where each child may grow closer to Jesus through living the Gospel values.
2. . . . maintains high academic expectations to prepare students to become productive and resourceful citizens who use their talents to better not only themselves, but also the global society.
3. . . . cooperates with families by extending and promoting opportunities for parental involvement in the religious and academic education of their children.
4. . . . encourages and models exemplary standards of conduct that reflect the moral values and teachings of our Catholic faith.
5. . . . fosters Catholic Christian ideals, and that the teachers and staff will be given the opportunity to fulfill these ideals through spiritual experiences, professional development, and community service.
6. . . . nurtures a culture where the parish and school communities will consciously work together to become contributing members of a global society through service and mission experiences.
7. . . . prepares students for academic and ethical responsibilities in the use of technology which will contribute to the improvement of the spirituality, health, and welfare of humanity.
8. . . . inspires students to take responsibility for their academics and behavior as they are encouraged to achieve their greatest potential.
