Philosophy

Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy is committed to providing a quality education in a Catholic environment.  This commitment is based upon our belief that Jesus Christ is the Master Teacher.  He is the perfect person, and the Model whom we offer to our students.  As a school named after Our Blessed Mother, we strive to make Mary, known as our Mother, Teacher and Guide.

True followers of Christ think and act in accordance with reason and faith.  Each staff member assists the children in developing their spiritual, moral, social, intellectual and emotional growth.

We integrate culture, faith, and life through the teaching of all subject areas in the light of the Gospel so that children can become “good Christians and honest citizens.”

Inspired by the examples of St. John Bosco, founder of the Salesians, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, foundress of the Sisters of Charity and St. Benedict, founder of the Benedictines whose sons and daughters are a part of this merged effort now called Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy, we implement their unique educative principles in daily interactions with our students.  Thus, a wholesome family atmosphere is created and a feeling of mutual trust and respect exists between staff and students.

We acknowledge the responsibility given to us by the children’s parents as well as the co-sponsored parishes.  We believe that through the cooperation of all involved the child will become a person of true character.  Hence, the school seeks to promote communication and unity among itself, the home and the co-sponsored parishes.
