Document on Education-Vatican II
In accordance with the goals of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, St. Gregory School forms a Catholic educational community wherein human culture, knowledge, and ancestral heritage centered in faith, are shared in a spirit of freedom and love. This education endeavors to pave the way to Christian associations with other people so that genuine unity and peace may be promoted. This faith community strives to foster that growth in the students which begets the fullness of Christian maturity.
The students are provided with a variety of learning experiences which assist in overcoming the educational difficulties often found with the bicultural living situations of their Hispanic and Asiatic backgrounds. The students are encouraged to strive to attain their God-giving potential through assiduous participation in classroom an independent studies.
The holistic growth of the students evolves through positive and creative participation in the home, the Church, the school, and the community. In these settings, the students experience their dignity and personhood and learn to treat all people with charity and justice.
The faculty and administration believe that the attainment of the goals of the school philosophy is achieved only through conscientious fulfillment of shared responsibilities. The best interests of the students are furthered through constant home-teacher; teacher-student, parent-principal and principal-student conferences are utilized to disclose the educational expectations and environments of the students, the school, and the family. The total growth of the student is the responsibility of the students, parents, school, the parish community, and the larger society.
