Our Mission

We, the school family of St. Ephrem Catholic Academy, strive to be a welcoming and responsive Roman Catholic community by passing our faith and traditions as we teach the students from Pre-K3 to 8th grade by word and example.

Our Philosophy

To address our Mission, the faculty and staff at St. Ephrem Catholic Academy believe that:

  • Catholic education has as its primary aim the promotion of a vibrant Christian community and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • The purpose of our educational process should be child-oriented and balance physically, emotionally, aesthetically, and socially with a developmentally appropriate, academically challenging, gospel-infused curriculum.

  • The relationship and rapport among the administration, faculty, staff, parents and students are essential as together they respectfully set a pattern of constructive experiences, thereby generating a uniquely cohesive curriculum.

  • As educators in a Catholic school, we are committed to the teaching of Christian values which provide a profound service to society.

  • Strategic planning is essential for preserving the vision of Catholic education in our school community.

  • Our teachers are trained in the specific area of instruction in which they are tasked to teach. Having a deep understanding of content is key to delivering high-quality instruction.
