Because it is also a COMMUNITY the Immaculate Conception Catholic School should:

  • Encourage the faculty, parents/guardians and students to a mutual awareness of what it means to be a member of the Christian community.
  • Provide communal religious and social activities.
  • Offer educational programs to both faculty and parents, over and above the educational programs for students and related to the students’ programs as much as possible.
  • Focus attention on growth of all members of the community as the concern of each member in the community.

As a community related to other larger communities, Immaculate Conception Catholic School should:

  • Fulfill a secular educational function which the society decreed as essential.
  • Follow in principle the directives set up for Independent / Private (and/or Assisted Schools) of the Education Act(s) issued by the Ministry of Education.
  • Provide opportunities and experience which emphasize the culture/heritage of St. Kitts and Nevis and the Caribbean region, as well as the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship.
  • Work with the community at large toward a better understanding and co-operation between all racial/cultural and religious grou
