Mission Statement

Lial Catholic School,

Sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame,

provides a caring community infused

with Gospel values centered on

the formation of the whole child.

United with parents, Lial is committed to

Academic excellence and the

development of necessary life skills

allowing each child to use his or her unique

God-given gifts to serve.


We Believe:

That each child is unique and precious, created by God out of love, for love,

That each child’s God-given uniqueness is respected and his/her

best self developed in a safe, caring environment.

That each child will have the opportunity to grow in faith

and in the Catholic traditions, serving others for

the transformation of society.

That each child must be taught 21st century concepts and skills,

supported by collaboration between faculty and staff, leading

to the development of work habits appropriate to the classroom

setting and real-world experiences.

That each child’s growth is unique and therefore should have the benefit

of an educational program adapted to his/her development.

That each child who is doing his/her best work will experience a

sense of personal satisfaction and success.


Therefore, We as Teachers Will:

Help each child develop a healthy self-confidence, i.ed, not be over blown or underestimated.

Help each child find satisfaction in learning activities in a safe, secure environment.

Help each child realize that he/she is called to a life of service through an understanding of the Catholic Social Teachings.

Help each child use the 21st century learning skills needed in today’s world.

Help each child think imaginatively and openly explore his/her and others’ ideas.

Help each child assume responsibility for his/her learning with parental support.
