We are guided in all our activities by the principles of our Catholic tradition which considers each individual as precious and a child of God. The concern of Anne Marie Javouhey, foundress of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny, for the development of each human being to the full measure of the perfection intended by God, and for the liberation of people from all forms of oppression and ignorance is a guiding principle of our school.
