St. Walter School’s programs are centered around the gospel values taught by the Catholic Church.
Particular emphasis is placed on the following:
Respect: Children are taught to recognize the good in each other and to accept each individual for the unique creation of God she/he is. Children are taught to value themselves, others, and nature – from conception to death.
Honesty: Children are taught to be truthful through what they say to others and through the work they submit as their own.
Obedience: Children are taught to follow rules and directions because they are for the good of the entire group.
Service: Children are taught to be helpful to others through the daily routines of school life and through special class projects focused on people from the community.
Peace: Children are taught nonviolent ways to resolve conflict and to have empathy for others.
Justice: Children are taught to seek ways to help others receive what they need for a comfortable life.
Value of Life: Children are taught to realize the benefits of hard work and are encouraged to always do their personal best.
Teachings and Traditions of the Church: Children are taught the basic doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church and the prayers, rituals and traditions of the practicing that doctrine.
