"Statement Acceptance of Guiding Principals for the Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington"
Catholic schools function at several interlocking levels within the educational ministry of the Church. As academic institutions, they enable students to acquire skills, knowledge, occupational competence and civic responsibility. As Christian institutions committed to the teachings of the Catholic Church, Catholic schools prepare students to respond in faith to Jesus Christ and to understand his message, to view human existence in terms of divinely appointed goals, to follow moral standards of conduct and to achieve integrity of character. As Catholic communities of faith, schools deepen the ties between pastor, priests, faculty, parents and students. Building community in all areas of like, Catholic schools foster a spirit of service to humanity and a feeling of fellowship transcending individual difference.
Catholic schools seek primarily to serve all Catholic parents who seek Catholic education for their children. Because the ultimate responsibility for education rests with parents, schools welcome parent participation in policy decisions through formal channels and encourage informal communication at all levels in such matters as personnel, curriculum and finances. Pastors, administrators and teachers cooperate by fulfilling their respective responsibilities toward the school program. All parties together assess effectiveness in relation to the progress and needs of each student. To the community at large, Catholic schools represent a successful educational alternative, striving for academic excellence without sacrificing Catholic values. The development of each individual student is fostered through innovation and effective use of resources.
All employees and volunteers are required, as a condition of employment and acceptance of volunteer services, to teach and exemplify the guiding principles set forth above.
This employer has requested that all applicants answer the following questions. It is highly recommended that you type any essays in a word processing program, save them, and then paste them on the proceeding job application page.
