St. John Bosco taught that an educated student should be instructed in both faith and reason. The mission of St. John Bosco High School is to educate the whole person within a harmonious relationship of faith and reason, all for the glory of the Triune God. With an authentic Catholic education students learn how to be defenders of the faith. By applying both faith and reason students have the ability to effectively respond to the modern world and the Church’s call to the new evangelization. “What is so new about the new evangelization is not only that it calls forth the efforts of every believer in Christ with no exceptions and no exemptions, but that it also is intended to target those who have suffered the loss of faith.” -Dr. Scott Hahn “Catholic education addresses the development of the whole person through spiritual and academic formation based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mission of Catholic education provides a particular environment for the New Evangelization by presenting the Gospel anew within the school and parish communities.”-United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Proclaiming the Gospel message to different cultures also involves proclaiming it to professional, scientific and academic circles. This means an encounter between faith, reason and the sciences with a view to developing new approaches and arguments on the issue of credibility, a creative apologetics which would encourage greater openness to the Gospel on the part of all.

Whatever is taken up is not just redeemed, but becomes an instrument of the Spirit for enlightening and renewing...Read More
