The purpose of Catholic education in the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas is to form students spiritually and academically in order that they may fully develop as human persons. The curriculum is designed to facilitate students’ discovery of their God given gifts and talents by embracing scholarship and academic life that is integrated and inclusive in its desire to spread the Good News. Catholic schools provide opportunities for students to begin their lifelong journey as disciples of Jesus Christ by teaching about Him, providing opportunities to witness Him and open their hearts to the spiritual transformation given by the Holy Spirit so that they serve God as they journey to the fullness of eternal life.
As human persons created in the image and likeness of God, we are called to join in the intellectual journey to find the truth, that leads us to God, because God is the absolute truth. “God continues to be present in the Church as her members contemplate the great things God has done through his Son by the power of the Holy Spirit for the salvation of all people. (USCCB) Ultimately, knowing and loving Jesus as a personal friend will lead students to eternal life.
