Mission & Philosophy
St. John Berchmans Catholic School enables the students to reach full awareness of their God given talents by building self-confidence, moral, civic and spiritual values in a safe, secure, positive learning environment.
St. John Berchmans School believes in a holistic education that enables all students to discover themselves, their strengths, and weakness. Through methods of role modeling, teachers strive to build student's self-esteem, self-determination, self-discipline, and responsibility in an atmosphere of optimism and love.
St. John Berchmans Catholic School offers a rigorous curriculum based on Archdiocesan standards designed to ensure they are prepared for the next grade level.
Our Catholic faith is at the heart of all we do at St. John Berchmans; it is the key component that sets our school apart from the rest. The study of our faith is an integral part of our school day, beginning and ending each school day with school wide prayer. All students participate in daily religion classes as well as weekly, student-led liturgies.
St. John Berchmans Catholic School teaches children to embody the virtues of piety, integrity, charity, humility; and to value the sanctity of human life and the dignity of the human person. Students develop and practice the basic doctrines and traditions of our Catholic Faith
