Maltrait Memorial's Philosophy

Maltrait Memorial Catholic School is committed to the work of the church through the ministry of education. In the Bishops' text, To Teach as Jesus Did, it is stated that we have a three-fold ministry: giving the message of God, fellowship in the Holy Spirit, and service to the community.

Maltrait strives to teach the individual to seek the good in all people by helping students develop social acceptance of others regardless of race, color, creed, handicap, national origin or financial status, in a safe peaceful environment.

We believe in providing the child with a sound academic education which will meet his/her emotional, intellectual, physical, religious and social needs.

Through the educational process, Maltrait nourishes self-esteem as well as humility in each individual and continues the development of Christian values and God-given talents begun in the home. Self-discipline is recognized as a prime factor in keeping alive the enthusiasm for learning.

The greatest accomplishment Maltrait can achieve is to foster, in partnership with the parents, the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of each student. This in turn will enable the student to grow into a mature and active Catholic parishioner, capable of serving God, country and others, now and into the future.
