Becoming Uncommon

Mr. James Walter Horne_17

Principal James Horne

Dear Parents and Friends,

Preaching to the world the Gospel values of Unity, Truth and Love is not all that common. At Saints, it is our mission. It is what we do, and the way we choose to inspire, educate and lead young men. Our mission is to help young men become uncommon. To do this we focus on Catholic and Augustinian values that create an educational experience which appreciates more than G.P.A.’s and test scores

Schools everywhere are focused on standards, curriculum and student learning. Look around … this is the common work of schools. Often, there’s nothing wrong with the ordinary, the common or the average. But, let’s be honest: your student is at Saints because you want and you believe in “something more”. As a community we want an uncommon experience for our sons. One that produces uncommon results.

Our faculty, staff, mentors and coaches integrate character and faith based values in our classes and programs providing guideposts for our students to follow, showing them the way toward becoming uncommon. We ask young men to think about honesty and integrity, living their faith, role modeling, life’s purpose, treatment of others, sexual integrity, humility and stewardship, in meaningful ways. In doing so we teach not only their minds but we also touch their hearts and lead them to the understanding that they can lead a life of significance.

Your sons can be men who impact the lives around us. They can be the men whose actions and intentions change lives. Sainstmen can be the ones whose daily act of living makes a difference at home, work, church, and within families and among friends.

This journey is long and it may be difficult … but the results, as we see in generations of Saintsmen who’ve preceded us, are uncommon.
