The Academy was founded to provide the student with an education that is one with the mind of Holy Church. The Church teaches that the natural world is God’s creation and the more a student knows about the world, the more he will know, love and serve God. A true Catholic education must reject modernism and be based on Sacred Tradition as embodied in the Traditional Latin Mass. Consistent with the mind of the Church, the Academy seeks to deliver to the student an academically rigorous course of study such that the student is prepared to undertake further studies at the college level if desired. The Academy accepts the duty of preparing the student to conduct his life in conformance with God’s plan for him.
As Pope Pius XI stated in Divini Illius Magistri, “It is therefore as important to make no mistake in education, as it is to make no mistake in the pursuit of the last end, with which the whole work of education is intimately and necessarily connected. In fact, since education consists essentially in preparing man for what he must be and for what he must do here below, in order to attain the sublime end for which he was created, it is clear that there can be no true education which is not wholly directed to man's last end, and that in the present order of Providence, since God has revealed Himself to us in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, Who alone is ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life,’ there can be no ideally perfect education which is not Christian education.” Hence, the mission of the Academy is to provide students with a Catholic education, both moral and intellectual, preparing them to be in the world but not of the world.
