The Church sees education as a process that, in light of man's transcendent destiny, forms the whole child and seeks to fix his or her eyes on heaven. The specific purpose of Catholic education is the formation of boys and girls who learn character, commitment, and community and become good citizens of this world, loving God and neighbor.
Faith: Borromeo Academy Scholars grow closer to God through faith learning about Catholic doctrine in the classroom, attending Mass twice weekly as a school, partaking in the Sacraments, and praying daily.
Adoration: Our children live in a busy, hectic world. We are running from school to activity to yet another activity. Adoration provides our youth a chance to slow down and quiet themselves before Jesus: a chance to nurture and grow their relationship with our Lord, a chance to deepen their prayer life, a chance to listen to Jesus.
Service: Borromeo Academy Scholars take part in service activities — both local and beyond — they demonstrate the values and faith they gain through their Catholic education and learn how to make the world a better place. “When they observe how others serve the community, they gain an appreciation for how they can continue to serve others their entire lives.”Service is putting our faith into action.
Athletics: The athletic program equips scholars for their lives beyond the game. The discipline instilled teaches them to work as a team, rely on others, and grow in character as they accomplish their goals. The one element that sets all of this apart from the club team is the bond of Christ on a team. Teammates care about each other beyond the games. Catholic education begins with the conviction that to be wise tomorrow, we must begin today to learn the wisdom of yesterday.
Houses: The House System is a student-led community. Each House is broken down into four families. This places the larger body of students into a more intimate group for our younger students to assimilate into and build relationships with our older students.
Each house is a cross-section of the Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric scholars and their parents. Each house competes in friendly competitions and takes part in service projects through the school year meant to foster Catholic character.
Partnering with parents in their role as primary educators, Saint Charles Borromeo Academy extends the mission of the Church in forming true disciples of Jesus Christ. Through a Catholic Classic Liberal Arts education centered on Christ, we provide an integrated approach fostering a love for truth, beauty, and goodness. We seek to instill a natural desire for wisdom and virtue in all students.
Saint Charles Borromeo Academy strives to be a recognized leader in the Kansas City area aspiring to deliver an excellent Catholic classical education graduating young men and women trained to communicate eloquently, think critically, and serve humbly.
