Our school in the city of Lancaster, Pa., is a happy place to be. Our principal and teachers stress the basics of education giving students a strong foundation to ready them for the rigorous curriculum they will receive at Lancaster Catholic High School. Religion classes, weekly Mass, prayer and works are practiced daily to give students an understanding that faith guides all. We celebrate diversity. We teach behavior that forms polite, respectful and competent young men and women. Most importantly, we take seriously our responsibility to guide children on their journeys to become disciples of Christ.
Resurrection Catholic School provides students with a Christ-centered education rooted in Sacred Scripture and the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. By encouraging their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development nurtured in a multicultural environment, we guide each child on his or her journey to become a disciple of Christ.
We believe that:
- Children are gifts from God entrusted in our care.
- Our children are the future of the Catholic Church and society.
- Each child needs a supportive, safe, and caring, yet disciplined environment for learning.
- We support the parents in their role as primary educators.
- Catholic ideals, virtues and values are to be cultivated and practiced.
- Children learn at different rates and different learning styles.
- Children need opportunities for their growth of self-confidence, respect, love of God and neighbor.
- Children need to be responsible citizens to deal with issues in today’s world.
Our staff and students feel like family; that’s what led us to our 2015-16 theme, Family of Faith. We’re celebrating this theme throughout the year with monthly Family of Faith activities including a family Rosary, fall festival and Catholic Schools Week special assembly featuring a local comedian.
