Mission & Core Values
Centered on Jesus Christ, in the Roman Catholic tradition, our mission is to form students who are intellectually astute, passionately faithful and socially responsible.
We, the Lancaster Catholic High School community, affirm the following:
- Jesus Christ, the Master Teacher, is the center of all we are and all we do.
- We are an institution guided by and faithful to the teachings and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church.
- Each person is a unique creation of an all-loving God.
- Families have the first responsibility for the education of their children in the faith.
- It is our calling to assist each student, in cooperation with Divine Providence, to reach his or her full potential in this life and reside with Him eternally in the next.
- We provide a balanced program of spiritual life, academics, community service, and activities which nurture students holistically.
- It is vital to provide a meaningful and diverse course of studies, rooted in the classic liberal arts tradition, adaptable to the needs of an ever-changing world.
- Students guided by constructive counsel and discipline are accountable in the educational process and are responsible for their actions.
- Each person is called to a life of holiness and faithful stewardship.
- Each person has a moral and civic responsibility to contribute to society.
