At Saint Stanislaus we strive to create a disciplined and orderly environment. This allows every student to work to his potential academically, physically, and spiritually while also instilling self-discipline and accountability in every young man on our campus. In the tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, we use a personal approach to discipline that we call “friendly discipline.” Friendly discipline allows us to enforce rules and correct behavior while at the same time building relationships of trust and understanding with our young men.
Our hope is that every one of our students graduates with an understanding of God’s love for them that in turn allows them to become well-rounded men of faith who respond with compassion to the needs and limitations of others. We want them to become self-disciplined individuals who have the utmost respect for authority and the persons for whom they are responsible. We hope that through their interactions with our faculty, staff, and administration, our students will learn to approach all of their relationships with fairness, mutual trust, and cooperation.
Our boys know that “wearing the S” on their chest means that they are held to a high standard, of which they sometimes fall short, but one that they agree is the ideal for the men they hope to one day become. They understand that graduating from Saint Stanislaus means much more than just getting a diploma; it means having the foundation necessary to go on to become men of character who have the ability to make the world around them a better place. They also understand the enormous responsibility that comes with an SSC diploma, the responsibility of representing their family, their school, and their Lord in everything they do and say.
