A Prayer

By September 11, 2015Blog

“Let us remember….that we are in the holy presence of God.”

We end our daily educational journey with those words: a prayer.

Immediately before saying the prayer together as a community, our students participate in EnCompass, our after-school faith-based enrichment program which focuses on whole person development: the social, emotional and ethical growth of each child. EnCompass programming plays a unique role in our goal: that every child develops a sense of meaning in our world and a faith in the future.

We are dedicated to transforming children and the community through innovative education; our EnCompass program fulfills this promise. With opportunities such as dance exploration with COCA, cooking with Operation Food Search, yoga with Urban Breath Yoga, drama with Summit Leadership Initiative, service learning based on Catholic social teachings and a myriad of other programs (chess, swimming, gardening, world religions, new and old testament, etiquette classes), our students’ days move beyond traditional classroom instruction.

Through EnCompass, we offer opportunities that lend themselves to taking risks, learning new skills, trying out different experiences, exploring faith and having fun! And our EnCompass program reminds us to embrace lifelong learning. Just as we challenge our students, we continue to challenge ourselves to innovate, to go beyond our comfort zones, to take risks, to explore our faith…and to have fun! Thank you for being a part of this incredible educational journey!

Live Jesus in our hearts…..Forever!
