  • To develop respect and tolerance for individual opinions and points of view.
  • To provide intellectual stimulation through challenging academic experiences.
PSYCHOLOGICAL GOALS:
  • To develop each child's awareness of his/her own self-worth.
  • To assist each child in the awareness of being fully loved by God and uniquely created by Him, with gifts to contribute to His world.
SOCIAL GOAL:
