Philosophy and Mission

St. Justin School is dedicated to providing a Christ-centered community that focuses on the needs of the whole child.  Our school provides a quality Catholic education in a safe and nurturing environment, fostering the development of faith-filled individuals who are responsible and socially just citizens.

“Living Our Faith” inspires our community to educate the whole child in a Christ-centered environment that fosters spiritual growth, lifelong learning, and service to the local and global community.

The foundation of St. Justin School is based on Gospel values as taught by the Catholic Church and exemplified by scholar and defender of the faith, St. Justin.  In partnership with our families, school staff, and parish community, students are challenged to fulfill their unique potential within an academic environment.  St. Justin School welcomes and embraces the diversity of our student body.
