MISSION STATEMENT

As an educational ministry of Immaculate Conception Parish, we partner with parents to prepare students for lives as Catholic leaders. As Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit, we focus on formation through prayer, message, concern, and service to community.  We teach students to live a life that embodies these values, is centered in Christ, and strives for their greatest academic potential.  They will experience a world around them rich in God’s love.

 

Philosophy

Immaculate Conception Grade School merges a strong academic program with rich faith formation to maximize each student’s potential.  All students are encouraged to develop their faith through devotion to the values that strengthen our Christian life – to know the gospel message of Jesus, to deepen our connection to Our Father through worship, to celebrate our faith with others through community, and to share God’s love with others through service.    

ICGS works to support growth through a program attending to the whole child.  While students are challenged to meet high academic expectations, we also recognize and cherish each child as unique and look to their individual needs.  Creating an environment of love, faith, and justice in which education can flourish is our priority.

The school staff works as a part of a team with parents and parish ministers to guide our students to learn and grow.  As a team, our emphasis is placed on the students’ acceptance of responsibility as strong Catholics.  Further, in recognizing our parents as primary educators, ICGS is proud to support their efforts to instill in their children Christlike attitudes and virtues.
