MISSION STATEMENT

Saint Basil Academy is a college preparatory school for young women. Established by the Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great and rooted in the Ukrainian Byzantine tradition of the Catholic Church, the Academy is dedicated to creating an environment nourished by the values promulgated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Academy’s core mission is to enable young women to develop to the fullest of their Christian potential. With this in mind, we strive to educate the whole person through a process that integrates faith with excellence in education, thus promoting an appreciation of the inherent beauty of creation while encouraging our students to espouse a commitment to improving their world.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Saint Basil Academy provides a unique learning environment where traditional values are affirmed and upheld while new and challenging experiences and opportunities are evaluated and explored.

Nurtured by the spiritual and cultural richness of its Ukrainian Catholic heritage and directed by the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great, the Academy provides a diversified curriculum that respects individual needs. Our dedicated faculty help students develop solid Christian values and a strong sense of community pride that will prepare them to assume leadership roles in today’s ever-changing world. Saint Basil Academy empowers its students to make successful choices in their lives and inspires them to leave things better than they found them.

Our role as Christian educators is not unilateral; it is a team endeavor that we share with parents, who are their daughters’ primary educators; with the communities in which our students live; with the alumnae of Saint Basil Academy; and with the Church.

We believe in providing an atmosphere for spiritual growth rich in the Gospel values of Jesus Christ.
