School-wide Learning Expectations


School-wide Learning Expectations are defined as what a student should know, understand, and be able to do by graduation. Through the School-wide Learning Expectations, our goal is to develop Catholic learners who are active, faith-filled Catholics, life-long learners, effective communicators, responsible citizens and culturally aware individuals.
