Mission Statement

Our school gives glory to God, the Most Blessed Trinity, by participating in the Catholic Church’s mission to draw all people to the Father through his Son, Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit. We seek to draw out the best from every student by maintaining the highest standards for them.

 

  • We pursue this vision by educating the whole person, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
     

  • Adhering to the educational norms of New York State, the Diocese of Brooklyn and the appropriate accrediting agencies, we also seek to promote a deeper understanding of the faith.
     

  • Therefore, we expect that every student will fulfill his or her obligations, educationally, behaviorally and religiously, whatever their religious affiliation.
     

  • These obligations can only be fulfilled with the active cooperation of the entire family. St. Mary’s School can best achieve its mission when the family has a serious involvement with its own religious denomination, whether Catholic or not, and we expect that every family at least attends its church on the Lord’s Day and as much as possible seeks active involvement its activities.
     

  • For Catholic families, St. Mary’s School encourages participation in St. Mary’s parish life and activities, or in the parish where they reside. One measure of such active participation is parish registration.

 


 

Nuestra escuela da Gloria a Dios, la Santísima Trinidad, por participar en la misión de la Iglesia Católica de traer a toda la gente al Padre a través su Hijo Jesucristo, en el poder del Espíritu Santo. Buscamos sacar lo mejor de cada estudiante manteniendo el nivel educativo mas alto.

  • Perseguimos esta visión educando la persona completa: intelectualmente, socialmente y espiritualmente
     

  • Unido a las normas educacionales del Estado de New York, la Diócesis de Brooklyn y las agencias apropiadas de acreditación, queremos promover un entendimiento mas profundo de la fe.
     

  • Entonces, esperamos que cada estudiante cumpla con sus obligaciones educacionales, religiosas y de buena conducta, sin excepción de su religión o congregación.
     

  • Estas obligaciones se pueden llevar a cabo con la colaboración active de la familia entera. Nuestra escuela puede realizar su misión mejor cuando la familia toma un compromiso activo con su propia iglesia o denominación. Esperamos que cada familia participe en su iglesia, a lo menos en el día del Señor, y que participe activamente de sus actividades.
     

  • Queremos que las familias católicas participen en la vida y actividades de nuestra parroquia o de su parroquia. Una medida de esta participación activa es la inscripción para recibir los sobres de la parroquia.
