Why Franciscan Philosophy of Education & Pedagogy?

In seeking the spirituality that would best serve the needs and objectives of our school we came to believe that the Franciscan observational and sensory, as well as, affective and mystical scriptural approach would be particularly effective in educating our modern students of elementary and secondary years. We feel that it should prove to be appealing to our young students who are naturally wired to think from the heart and senses. Our curriculum will be designed to teach our students to discover, meet and come to know God through His Traces in Creation. This was the particular charism of our patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi, who travelled the earth with a song of love for each of God's Creatures. Everywhere he looked, he saw the face of our Incarnate God.
