Sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame,
provides a caring community infused
with Gospel values centered on
the formation of the whole child.
United with parents, Lial is committed to
Academic excellence and the
development of necessary life skills
allowing each child to use his or her unique
God-given gifts to serve.

We Believe

That each child is unique and precious, created by God out of love, for love,

That each child’s God-given uniqueness is respected and his/her best self developed in a safe, caring environment.

That each child will have the opportunity to grow in faith and in the Catholic traditions, serving others for the transformation of society.

That each child must be taught 21st century concepts and skills, supported by collaboration between faculty and staff, leading to the development of work habits appropriate to the classroom setting and real-world experiences.

That each child’s growth is unique and therefore should have the benefit of an educational program adapted to his/her development.

That each child who is doing his/her best work will experience a sense of personal satisfaction and success.

Therefore, We as Teachers Will:

Help each child develop a healthy self-confidence, i.ed, not be over blown or underestimated.

Help each child find satisfaction in learning activities in a safe, secure environment.

Help each child realize that he/she is called to a life of service through an understanding of the Catholic Social Teachings.

Help each child use the 21st century learning skills needed in today’s world.

Help each child think imaginatively and openly explore his/her and others’ ideas.

Help each child assume responsibility for his/her learning with parental support.
