Profile of a BSS Student

The mission statement of Blessed Sacrament School asserts that our school strives to develop every child spiritually, intellectually, and socially in an atmosphere of Christian concern and service. Our educational and co-curricular programs, therefore, are dedicated to the promotion of spiritual growth, academic excellence, and social awareness. When students graduate from Blessed Sacrament School, it is our hope that they will be excellent students who are well prepared to thrive academically in a rigorous high school environment. More important, however, we hope that they will be well-rounded young men and women—students who love God, care about others, and can confidently make decisions based on the core values of their faith and families.
