The mission of The Highlands School is to provide the highest quality education and foster integrally formed Christian leaders.  This mission is fulfilled as The Highlands School students graduate as strong Christian leaders, convinced of the truth, prepared and committed to establish and foster a society where Christian values are taught, embraced and put into practice.

To educate each student to love authentic values and to develop a sense of what is good, right, noble, just, and beautiful;
To form the character of each student as the foundation of all virtue and integrity.

Integral Formation

The Highlands School implements the Integral Formation method of education - a proprietary and comprehensive system for developing and operating schools in accordance with the principles of education adopted by the Legionaries of Christ.  This method of education is successfully developing authentic Catholic leaders in schools worldwide.  Built upon the Christian view of the person, Integral Formation focuses on forming all dimensions of the person:  intellectual, human, spiritual and apostolic, achieving the complete or integral formation of the student.  An integral formation is the base for helping each student fulfill the unique mission for which he or she was created.

Christian View of Man

The Integral Formation method of education is built upon Christian philosophy.  The Christian sees man as made in the image and likeness of God and destined to conform himself to Christ.  Each person is created by God with a specific mission to fulfill.  The ultimate aim of our education is to help the person to fulfill the mission for which he was created.  We work to help each person develop his gifts and natural talents so that he can fully love and server God in society.

In our educational method, students learn to seek truth and acquire virtue while developing a broad base of knowledge and a solid understanding of the Faith.  Christ is the model for our students and provides the pattern for living out the mission for which we were created.  For us Christ in a living person with words of Eternal Life.
