To create a friendly, inclusive, learner-centered “Learning Commons” environment for collaboration, inquiry, imagination and play to expand and deepen learning; an environment which is relevant to the school’s faith-based community, which supports the curriculum and teaching staff and which enables students to achieve their full potential as active participants in our increasingly complex and technologically driven society.
