Hopes for our Graduates

We are confident that based on their experiences as students in a Brothers of the Sacred Heart school, our graduates are becoming well-rounded, faith-filled, self-disciplined, compassionate, and academically prepared men and women who respond to God’s love.

As a result of our emphasis on holistic education, we hope our graduates are well-rounded young people who:

  • are aware of their own gifts, talents, and limitations;
  • recognize the need to continue their own spiritual, psychological, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth;
  • respond to God’s call to be balanced, compassionate adults.

Because of our emphasis on spiritual growth and religious values, we hope that our students graduate with:

  • a strong belief that God loves them;
  • a willingness to respond to Jesus’ directive to love one another;
  • a commitment to compassion, justice, and service;
  • a desire for a deeper relationship with God through prayer;
  • an intentional integration of faith and daily life;
  • an understanding of the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church;
  • a willingness to become active members in their local church communities

Because of our efforts at firm and friendly discipline, we hope that our graduates:

  • have developed self-discipline that guides their actions;
  • are sensitive and respond with compassion to the limitations of others;
  • have respect for authority and for persons for whom they are responsible;
  • approach relationships with fairness, mutual trust, and cooperation.

Because of the caring nature and personal attention given to our students, we hope our graduates:

  • genuinely care for others;
  • value themselves and others as unique children of God;
  • nurture positive relationships and build community.

As a result of our commitment to academic excellence, we hope our graduates:

  • are intellectually curious;
  • are prepared to meet the academic demands of college;
  • strive to reach their intellectual potential;
  • use their intellectual gifts to serve others more effectively and generously.
