Mission Statement of Norfolk Catholic School
The mission of Norfolk Catholic School is to support parents in their role as the primary educators of their children by providing resources, within a Catholic environment, that will enable students to become good stewards in their future vocations.
The purpose of Catholic education is to prepare the children for their life in a Christian community so that they may attain their eternal destiny. Catholic education encompasses every aspect of human life.....spiritual and physical, intellectual and moral, individual, domestic, and social....with a view of perfecting it in accordance with the teachings of Christ. Parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children, and are essential to the success of Catholic education. Thus the primary goal of the Catholic School is to cooperate with parents and Parish community to educate children to serve God, mankind, the community and their world.
