Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters the search for meaning as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest.

In classrooms, this is expressed through the inclusion of every learner, using differentiated instruction and student voice as well as culturally sensitive models of pedagogy and assessment for learning.
