A Middle States

Accredited School

It is the mission of St. Catherine Laboure School to provide our students with a Catholic education of the highest academic excellence while integrating into that education the Church's spiritual teachings, in order to help our students form solid spiritual values in themselves and healthy relationships with each other and the world around them. 
In support of our mission, we are committed to the following "Guiding Beliefs:"


  • With God's guidance, we will dedicate our efforts to creating an environment that will advance and support the personal development of our students, while rewarding and challenging them, as they strive to reach their fullest educational and spiritual potential.

  •  While our students are our future, our parents and teachers are unquestionably the shapers of that future. 

  • We are committed to securing and maintaining a highly qualified and dedicated faculty in order to ensure optimal academic and spiritual growth in all of our students.

  • While the world is becoming an ever more complex place in which to live, we as partners in education with parents, are committed to teach our children to make decisions according to God's plan and His teachings of love, peace, honesty, integrity, and the Golden Rule.
