St. John Berchmans Catholic School is dedicated to the sacred ministry of providing quality education, anchored in the Roman Catholic tradition, which nurtures children in Catholic values and promotes excellence in education and a life of service.
We envision a Catholic school in which students are prepared to become self-directed, life-long learners empowered by the gospel message of Jesus Christ to live a life of virtue, integrity, and service to others.
St. John Berchmans is committed to promoting academic excellence, personal responsibility, and spiritual awareness among the students so they may live more fully in a relationship with God and others. We envision a Catholic school in which students are prepared to become self-directed, life-long learners empowered by the gospel message of Jesus Christ to live a life of virtue, integrity, and service to others. Education is a life-long process that begins at home, is fostered at school, and continues throughout life. Instructional practices incorporate learning activities that recognize different learning styles and afford students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding through a variety of assessments. A strong moral, structured, and safe environment promotes self-discipline and provides a positive learning atmosphere. A standard of high expectation, a disciplined environment, and quality programs in the academic disciplines and fine arts are provided to enhance student performance. A teaching curriculum that incorporates problem-solving and critical thinking, collaboration and leadership, effective and written communication, accessing and analyzing information, curiosity, and imagination and technological knowledge encourages students to acquire marketable skills to become productive members of society.
