Mission Statement

The teachers, staff, and parents of La Purísima Catholic School are dedicated to provide for the formation of the whole child; spiritually, morally, physically, emotionally, and academically. We strive to help our children become disciples of our Church and confident, responsible and creative leaders of our community. Teachers and staff partner with the parents, as the primary educators of their children, to instruct our students in an atmosphere of cooperation that respects individual differences and cultural traditions. Through a Christ-centered program, we endeavor to provide opportunities for our students to acquire the skills needed to meet the demands of the present, while preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow.
