Message from the Principal

Faith, knowledge and action are words of great importance. The Catholic faith is understood as fidelity to the demands of honesty in the assurance of things that no one sees; it is the certainty of God, but it is still necessary to know how to explain it to the whole universe, which "awaits with great hope the manifestation of the children of God" — Rom. VIII, 19. Faith illuminates study (faith enlightens reason) and forms youth in the discernment of a future vocation. Knowledge of languages (French, English and Latin), history, philosophy, music, mathematics and science will give students the power to one day explain their faith in a life of action where they will be able to think lucidly and lead their lives according to God's desires. This is the pedagogical project, an unmissable project that passes through Holy Mary, Mother of God, Mediatrix of all graces.
