Mission of Bishop Luers Catholic High School 

Bishop Luers family,

We spent time this at the beginning of our school year in staff and faculty meetings reviewing the mission, vision and belief statement of the school. I believe that this is a great time for our families and friends to review the mission because you are also responsible for the advancement of the mission of Bishop Luers.

A mission statement is a declaration of the purpose of a company, organization or person; its reason for existing; a written document of an organization's core purpose and focus that normally remains unchanged over time.

Our Mission Statement - Bishop Luers High School is a Catholic educational community that instills in each student dignity, integrity, respect and responsibility. Nurtured by Catholic truths, each student is able to face the challenges in his or her own life spiritually, academically and socially, while serving God and others in a global and changing society.

Organizations summarize their goals and objectives in mission and vision statements. Both serve different purposes for a company but are often confused with each other. While a mission statement describes what a company wants to do now, a vision statement outlines what a company wants to be in the future.

Our Vision Statement - Bishop Luers will vibrantly show the face of Christ in the actions and ministry of all students, families, teachers and staff. Bishop Luers High School will ensure that Catholic secondary education is available, accessible and affordable for all who wish to attend.

Our Belief Statements
  • We believe Bishop Luers High School is a Catholic high school built on a strong foundation of Gospel values empowering all to live faith-filled lives.
  • We believe in academic excellence where both students and teachers are actively engaged in the learning process.
  • We believe that every student has the opportunity to achieve his or her God-given potential.
  • We believe in a safe school environment nurtured by mutual respect and personal responsibility.
  • We believe cultural, economic and racial diversity enriches our school.

It's going to be a great school year!
It's good to be a Knight!
