Where Faith and Knowledge Meet
NONDISCRIMINATION POLICY 2018-2019
ST. BRIDGET OF SWEDEN STUDENT NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY
St. Bridget of Sweden School, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
St. Bridget of Sweden School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schools operate as single-sex schools.
While the St. Bridget of Sweden School does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student’s emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.
Student Learning Expectations
To become a well-integrated individual with Catholic principles and values
We provide our students, parents, and staff the opportunity to experience the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to bring Catholic beliefs and values into their lives and the world.
To become an active life long learner
All students are encouraged to participate in every aspect of their education, and as alumni, to return and share their knowledge and talents with students currently enrolled.
To recognize the value of self-expression through diversified art forms
Our fine arts program was established to help each student develop an appreciation for literature, drama, music, dance, and the fine arts under the guidance of professional artists, actors and musicians. Our goal is to help each student develop creative and critical analytical skills in order to make personal aesthetic judgments.
To develop respect for the thoughts and opinions of others
St. Bridget students are taught through example and words the value of each child’s unique worth. Our goal is that all children are treated with respect and love.
To create a positive attitude toward physical development
Competitive programs include boys and girls volleyball, basketball, and football. Daily Physical Ed. classes help each student realize the need for good health and physical fitness. After school karate and dance classes allow students the opportunity to develop talents in those areas.
To develop a willingness to participate in the community
Our Food Drives, retreats and para-liturgies prepare our students spiritually for outreach and service within the community.
To develop respect for all life
As a school family, we strive to reach out to our civic and world community by our good example, participation, and direct service.
St. Bridget of Sweden provides an atmosphere conducive to critical academic, spiritual, physical, and social growth that prepares students for the challenges ahead.
