The phrase "building a lasting foundation for the future" is often used to describe the value of a St. Clement's School education. The description implies solid, strong preparation for higher education and life experiences. The achievement of building a lasting foundation results from the school's success in upholding and advancing its mission: Within a nurturing Christian environment, St. Clement's Parish School promotes each child's academic, spiritual, moral, artistic, physical, and intellectual growth.
Administrators and teachers collaborate to develop and offer authentic, balanced, student-centered learning experiences for each child, all in relation to the mission. The administration is dedicated to the professional growth of the faculty, especially to their understanding of how children learn and how to apply their understanding to research-based best practices for teaching.
The learning environment reflects strong rapport between teachers and students evidenced by mutual respect and an engaging atmosphere. Through active participation in varied learning experiences, students develop valuable skills in problem-solving and critical thinking. High expectations challenge them to develop study skills and self-discipline. These expectations are balanced by teachers who truly care about their students' progress.
