The initial motivation behind the founding of our international schools was the inciting, ever-gnawing awareness that our region, to preserve its unique identity and to advance authentically Catholic liberal arts thinking, was in great need of a proudly professed Catholic liberal arts school system. To be faithful to its classical roots, Catholic liberal arts education must represent and serve bi-culturally and internationally all the citizens of our beloved Lower Rio Grande Valley/Rio Bravo cultural homeland.
As Catholics, the founders of our school system knew that, in the realization of the vision, the two thousand years of Catholic culture that has “informed” Western civilization would inevitably and inexorably be clearly expressed in the contribution of a “Catholic perspective” of Classical Liberal Education.
Never be haughty. If you do some splendid things for which you are congratulated, you could rightly say, “Thank you very much. I am grateful to God for giving me the gifts for His honor and glory” Parent/Student Handbook, Chapter III
