Mission & Philosophy

Philosophy Statement

 

Our Lady of Malibu Catholic School educates the whole child.  Each child is unique and we strive to help our

students identify their strengths and to discover ways of developing them.  Every student is challenged to reach

his or her highest potential by establishing a rigorous curriculum for intellectual development while fostering emotional, social, moral, and spiritual growth.  A safe and stimulating environment enables each child to discover and develop his or her unique gifts and talents. Our goal is to inspire life-long learners to become mindful, global citizens that incorporate community service as an integral component of our holistic approach.

 

Mission Statement

Our Lady of Malibu Catholic School forms students and their families

in the Catholic faith while respecting the traditions and practices of all religions.

 

We strive for excellence, unlocking the full potential of each individual,

and building confident, collaborative and independent learners.

 

We stress the total development of each child: Spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical.

Root Beliefs

We believe that education should foster growth of the whole child in mind, body and spirit and in educating the whole student, we include: spiritual, social, artistic and academic, recognizing that all students have unique gifts and talents.

 

We believe lessons should be challenging where students apply critical higher level thinking skills,

in which they construct meaning from the content.

 

We believe that teachers should establish a welcoming community of learning where each child feels safe,

loved, and respected.

 

We believe education is built upon communication, collaboration and accountability amongst parents,

students, teachers and administrators.
