The keystone to the success of St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish School is the sincere commitment of the entire school community to its mission to educate the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. All stakeholders in the school are fully invested in the belief that development of the whole child leads not only to an academically successful student, but also to a well rounded, responsible, Catholic person.

To achieve this goal, a culture that values the individual child is carefully and deliberately crafted. The guiding principle that every action, every interaction, and every decision must benefit children is the determinant for all programs and activities. Parents, teachers, and administrators work together to provide a safe, inspiring, academic atmosphere where children achieve their goals and are fully prepared for the future. The motto, Serving God Through Serving Others, is fundamental to the mission of the school. All students learn early the importance of service to both the local and global communities.

St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish School is the hub of the students' and their families' lives. Relationships between children and among families that begin in prekindergarten continue past high school and into college. School families are also part of the larger parish community of Faith. The unwavering commitment of the parents, teachers, staff, and administrators to educate the whole child guarantees the success of each child today and well into the future.
