The very etymology of words
like "school", "academy", and "academic" acknowledge
how indebted human knowledge is to religion.
In a culture which is becoming increasingly secular,
Holy Child Catholic School is particularly concerned to foster a deep appreciation for the harmony of faith and reason.
Faith and reason are, as has often been said,
the two wings which enable humanity
to fulfill its transcendental destiny.
At Holy Child Catholic School,
we are committed to Classical Catholic education.
Classical educators are particularly concerned to reconnect
with that long tradition of liberal education*
which has been largely forgotten
in the history of modern educational theory.
*Liberal Education: An approach to learning that empowers individuals and prepares them to deal with complexity, diversity, and change. This approach emphasizes broad knowledge of the wider world (e.g., science, culture, and society) as well as in-depth achievement in a specific field of interest. It helps students develop a sense of social responsibility; strong intellectual and practical skills that span all major fields of study, such as communication, analytical, and problem-solving skills; and the demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings.
