Mission & Philosophy Statement
At Saint Clare of Assisi Catholic School, we live, spread, and celebrate the gospel values of Respect, Responsibility, and Reverence in a Catholic environment. We embrace a challenging, safe, and nurturing environment that enriches the heart, mind, and soul for life.
To form disciples intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially so that they may hear God’s call in their life and have the needed abilities and skills to respond to that call in service to God and community.
Our Catholic faith is the cornerstone of St. Clare School. We believe that each person is created in the image and likeness of God for a special purpose. This realization is what builds true self-esteem and gives meaning to our lives.
Jesus is at the heart of our school and its curriculum. He teaches that we treat others as we wish to be treated, and that we are responsible for one another. His message is the reason for everything we do. At St. Clare, we focus on the development of the whole child: intellectual, spiritual, social, moral and physical.
Following the curriculum of the Archdiocese of Denver, students learn Catholic values and basic skills necessary for life. Learning opportunities include direct, differentiated, and small group instruction. Through study of the faith, active participation in liturgies and the sacramental life of the parish, students experience God’s unconditional love for them. They are encouraged and provided with opportunities to serve others in order to practice their faith and extend God’s love into the larger community. Students at St. Clare School are taught how to develop love of God, love of learning, love of themselves and love for others. Throughout their school career they are helped to discover their gifts and talents, and have opportunities to develop them in a variety of ways. Students learn to communicate well, think critically, take responsibility for their choices and actions, and begin to understand the importance of being well-informed and faith-filled contributing members of an ever-changing world.
