Belief Statement

Archbishop Ryan Academy for the Deaf
St. Lucy Day School for Children with Visual Impairments

 

We believe that each child is a gift from God sent to us love, nurture, protect, and respect.

We believe that it is our responsibility to help our students develop and share their God-given talents.

We believe that Catholic Christian values are an integral part of our school curriculum.

We believe that children learn best in a Catholic Christian environment that is safe, and respects the needs of each student.

We believe that children with visual and hearing impairments are capable of, and should be provided with, the social, academic, and technological skills necessary to become contributing members of society.

We believe that parents, teachers, students, staff, and the parish community are partners in education.

We believe that self-esteem, self-advocacy, and spiritual well-being are keys to becoming a successful citizen.

We believe that instruction should be rigorous, cohesive, coherent, and tailored to meet the needs of each student.

We believe that children with sensory impairments, who are capable of completing the general school curriculum with adaptations for their impairment, should be educated along with their sighted and hearing peers.

We believe that as a school community, we are committed to self-evaluation in order to grow academically and spiritually.

We believe that we are open to serve all children with sensory impairments, regardless of race, religion, or ability to pay tuition.
