Mission And Philosophy
"The glory of God is the human person fully alive."
The Mission of Cardinal Newman High School is to educate the whole person: spirit, mind, and body, and to help all students develop their God-given talents according to the gospel values of Jesus Christ. In fulfilling this mission, we provide:
"Growth is the only evidence of life."
-John Henry Cardinal Newman
Cardinal Newman is a Catholic, Christian community where each student can become the person that God invites him or her to be.
We believe students learn self-esteem and self-fulfillment through Catholic Church teachings, hard work, intellectual challenge, and the acquisition of knowledge.
We believe in teachers who understand and respect individual learning styles and who find appropriate ways to motivate individual students to do their best.
We believe in teaching the fundamental values of loyalty, responsibility, mutual respect, common courtesy, integrity, honesty, and common sense.
We believe in the ethical teachings, the continuity, and the traditions of the Catholic Church. We believe in giving students opportunities to participate actively in relevant retreats, liturgies, and para-liturgical experiences.
We believe that we play a vital role in the community. We espouse the concept of community involvement both as a school and for our students.
We believe in developing student-leaders who will have a positive influence on those around them.
We believe in encouraging students to recognize problems as opportunities for new experiences and growth.
We believe in making our students sensitive to the needs of others through voluntary and mandatory service experiences.
We encourage extracurricular activities such as clubs and sports as important to total student growth and development.
