"From the first moment that a student sets foot in a Catholic school, he or she ought to have the impression of entering a new environment, one illumined by the light of faith and having its own unique characteristics . . . an environment permeated with the Gospel spirit of love and freedom."
Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School
The Congregation for Catholic Education, Rome, 1988.
Ave Maria Catholic School is, proudly and uniquely, a part of 6% of Core Knowledge schools that are parochial. AMCS recognizes the importance and value of a strong core curriculum that is built grade by grade. As a Friend of Core Knowledge, Ave Maria Catholic School will continue to develop a foundation for students to learn in an environment that is "coherent, cumulative, and content-specific" while fostering positive individual growth, self-discipline, and responsible involvement in school and community. We will strive to have each student build a lasting relationship with God so that upon leaving, our students will possess a passion for learning, open minds, and the ability to adapt to a diverse and changing world. Our goal is for each person in our school family to understand the responsibility of putting faith into action, to experience the joy of serving Christ in the needy and poor among us, and to follow Christ's call to build a world grounded in faith and justice.
