Philosophy

Immaculate Conception School provides educational opportunities, within a family environment, for each student. Emphasis is placed upon spiritual, intellectual, cultural, social, and physical development. A curriculum that integrates these attributes into every phase of the program is provided within budgetary possibilities. The encouragement of Catholic ideals and the practice of Christís moral and ethical code cultivate spiritual growth. Every effort is made to nurture in each student a sense of self-esteem, personal responsibility, service to others and patriotism. The faculty members accomplish this task by implementing the educational system of St. John Bosco, a system based entirely upon reason, religion and loving-kindness.

Goals

Immaculate Conception School strives to develop the whole person-spiritually, morally, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. As a value-oriented school, Immaculate Conception School aims to educate each student for Catholic living in present-day society, as evidenced by service to God, to neighbor and to country. Students are led to be accountable for their actions during the school year through a wholesome school discipline policy. In this way, students gradually internalize and develop healthy self-discipline.
