Dear SVDP Community,

VISION STATEMENT:

Saint Vincent de Paul School, acknowledging its century-old legacy while envisioning its future, will excel in providing an educational environment where students take risks and challenge assumptions by embracing experiential opportunities, learning to think innovatively, and growing courageously in their relationships with God.


MISSION STATEMENT:

In solidarity with St. Vincent de Paul, we strive to be experiential, innovative, and courageous learners who are committed to promoting Gospel Values.


Saint Vincent de Paul School recognizes that the efforts of the entire school community are necessary to instill core Catholic values and achieve educational goals. Our students engage in active learning, witness the relevance of knowledge as it applies to the world around them, and approach life with an enthusiasm to continually explore opportunities to learn.


Saint Vincent de Paul School is deeply committed to the education of the whole child. In partnership with parents as the primary educators, we strive to instill in students a sense of self-worth and pride in their accomplishments. We encourage them to appreciate the diversity in the world. We aim to prepare them to become educated and active global citizens.


CORE VALUES:

Honor Catholic Tradition

Live to Serve

Engage in Joy-filled Learning

Strive for Excellence

Appreciate Individual Differences

Be Globally Aware
