Portrait of a Graduate

Our Portrait of a Graduate is an aspirational and realistic statement about how we educate. It influences all that we do in and out of the classroom and incorporates our Holy Child Goals, which are essential to our school identity.

Portrait of a Graduate was a collaborative effort of our faculty and staff who identified these goals as the outcomes for which we strive.
