Catholic Graduate Expectations

Catholic Graduates

Catholic education views human life as an integration of body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest. The expectations of Catholic graduates, therefore, are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but in terms of values, attitudes and actions.

A graduate is expected to be:

  • A discerning believer formed in the Catholic Faith community who celebrates the signs and sacred mystery of God's presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living.

  • An effective communicator, who speaks, writes and listens honestly and sensitively, responding critically in light of gospel values.

  • A reflective, creative and holistic thinker who solves problems and makes responsible decisions with an informed moral conscience for the common good.

  • A self-directed, responsible, lifelong learner who develops and demonstrates their God-given potential.

  • A collaborative contributor who finds meaning, dignity and vocation in work, which respects the rights of all and contributes to the common good.

  • A caring family member who attends to family, school, parish and the wider community.

  • A responsible citizen who gives witness to Catholic social teaching by promoting peace, justice and the sacredness of human life.
