Integrating learning with christian values and faith, Montini Catholic provides each student with opportunities for becoming a mature christian person. In addition to our academic curriculum, one can continue to develop their faith with liturgical and personal prayer, retreat participation, or service opportunities.
PRAYEREach day we begin the school day with communal prayer. Every class begins with prayer, always placing ourselves in the presence of our God. We celebrate Eucharist as a faith community throughout the school year. Since Word and Eucharist are at the center of our faith, we at Montini feel that is it important to celebrate as a community. Priests from our feeder parishes are invited to celebrate "for" and "with" us. This bridges the relationship the students have in their school with their home parishes.
Retreat time allows for students to take time away from everyday life and make time for their faith. Students are given the opportunity for a retreat during all four years at MCHS.
SERVICE LEARNING PROGRAMMontini Catholic follows a service-learning program, believing that a well designed program can move service to a whole new dimension. Service can strengthen young people’s faith, but they may not make that connection without some help. Beginning with the class of 2016, the students will have numerous opportunities for journaling and reflection. Service learning is an educational movement that helps translate academic learning to the real world. The core components of service learning are authentic service, structured reflection, and integration with a subject to be learned. Service, with the inclusion of structured reflection, can help students learn about God’s personal presence in the world and about the specific vision of God represented by Catholicism.
Students are required to complete at least 10 hours of service in the greater community per school year.
