Mission Statement:

The mission of Blessed Sacrament School is to encourage children to embrace the Gospel values of Jesus Christ and to prepare for life as active Catholics in the Church and in the world. We develop spiritual growth, academic achievement, and personal responsibility through prayer, study, and service to others.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

People are created in the image of God, and out of His goodness and love for them He has redeemed them through His Son, Jesus Christ. Parents share in the process of creation and redemption, and are the primary educators of their children. A Catholic school is a cooperative agent in that education, and consequently accepts its responsibility to cooperate in the total education of each child. This education encompasses spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical dimensions. The school fulfills this responsibility in a two-fold manner, both being equal and complementary.

In the area of spiritual development, the goal is to instill Christian values in the children, and to aid in the development of a positive self-image. Love and respect of self will lead naturally to respect for God and His church, as well as His command to love one’s neighbor. For this reason, these values have both an individual and a social dimension. In the area of curriculum, the school is expected to provide a strong and appropriate academic program, which stimulates educational development in a positive atmosphere of Christian love.

A three-fold cooperative is necessary to achieve our philosophy:
· The school is expected to teach in the most appropriate way the basic skills necessary for entrance into high school.
· Students are expected to put forth maximum effort and to cooperate with the school.
· Parents are expected to be actively involved in the spiritual and academic education of their children and to give support to the policies and programs of the school.

School History:

In January of 1920, Bishop Brossart gave permission to begin construction of Blessed Sacrament Church and School. The original red brick building housed the church on the first floor and the school on the second floor. The parish and student body quickly began to outgrow the new school. In 1924 two wings were added to the school. In 1996, Blessed Sacrament School celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary.
