Philosophy & Mission



Throughout our eighty years of academic excellence, we the community of Saint Ferdinand Catholic School have believed that every child is a unique expression of the brilliance of God. We respect and welcome the diversity of all students and believe that every child is inherently intelligent, good and uniquely talented.

Inspired by the desire to empower our students to fulfill their God-given potential, our faculty is committed to providing a comprehensive and challenging academic program that is permeated by our Catholic faith. Recognizing the integral role that math and science is playing in the twenty-first century, we are dedicated to placing special emphases in these areas through an advanced technological program.


Saint Ferdinand Catholic School, guided by our Catholic-Christian faith and tradition, is committed to providing a challenging and dynamic curriculum designed to motivate academic growth through twenty-first century learning. Rooted in Gospel values, we inspire and prepare our students to be responsible and productive citizens while leading a life of Christian service.
