About Justin Siena High School

Justin-Siena is a Catholic high school in the Lasallian tradition. Since 1680 educational institutions in more than 80 countries have been influenced by the vision and innovative spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the patron saint of teachers. De La Salle transformed education by forming a community of educators with whom he developed a spirituality of teaching and learning, to give a human and Christian education to young people, especially the poor.

Lasallian Education centers on Catholic values and personal relationships, emphasizing academic excellence, faith formation, inclusion, respect for the individual, service and social justice. A Lasallian Education strives to enrich each student's cultural, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development.

Today, the De La Salle Christian Brothers and their Lasallian Partners continue to respond to students through advancements in teaching, technology and scholarship. In Lasallian communities, educators touch hearts, stimulate minds and cultivate leadership to prepare students for life, work, and service to society and the Church.

Lasallian Core Principles

Faith in the Presence of God
Belief in the living presence of God in our world. Prayer and regular reminders of God’s presence create the prevailing spirit of the school where all are taught to discover how God is active in our lives and to learn to see the world through eyes of faith.

Respect for All Persons
A concerted effort by the school to respect the dignity of all persons.

Inclusive Community
A united community where diversity is respected, where no one is left out, and where everyone finds a place.

Concern for the Poor and Social Justice
The school demonstrates a sensitivity toward the poor and those suffering from injustice.

Quality Education
An education is provided that prepares students not only for success in college, but also for success in all of their future endeavors.
 
Faculty and staff strive to serve a diverse ethnic and socio-economic cross-section of the surrounding communities. Parents are invited and expected to enter into partnership in both the responsibilities and the benefits of Justin-Siena's educational experience so that the school experience can effectively complement and build on the primary education that begins in and is sustained by the home environment.
 
God is revealed and found in many religions; but as a Catholic school, Justin-Siena adheres to the revelation of God found in the tradition and institutions of the Roman Catholic Church. Students and teachers are united through their participation in the process of Catholic education and by common faith in the Gospel. This unity is expressed in daily relationships and participation in religious activities.

The curriculum is directed primarily toward those students who intend to continue their education beyond the secondary level. Courses in the curriculum are designed to provide knowledge in a variety of basic disciplines, skills for clearer communications, heightened awareness of political and social concerns, personal and spiritual growth and encouragement in creative expression.

Teachers and staff are qualified to undertake the work of Catholic education by virtue of their academic preparation, by their generosity, and by their concern for young people. Teachers express this love by careful lesson preparation, thoughtful evaluation of student progress, and personal interest and involvement in the lives and activities of students.

The instructional process at Justin-Siena is approached with challenge, freedom, and respect. Students are challenged academically in order to help them realize their full human potential. They are given opportunities to discuss freely, present ideas openly, and examine opinions carefully, in order to develop confidence in their insights and judgments. Implicit in every interaction with students is a recognition of his/her worth and dignity. Faculty are committed to maintaining a warm and supportive learning situation.

Rules, regulations, and policies are designed to encourage personal responsibility and self-discipline within the school community. Freedom commensurate with maturity and responsibility is encouraged. Rules provide for good order and enhanced learning conditions, and reinforce the spirit of respect for self and others.

In addition to the academic program, students find a wide range of extracurricular and co-curricular activities in spiritual development, community service, athletics and the arts, through which they may be of service to others and develop and exercise personal leadership.

Administration and faculty are responsible to see that Justin-Siena's program, curricular and extracurricular, and mode of operations flow directly from the mission and philosophy.
