Character Formation

The students at St. Jose Sanchez del Rio Catholic School develop their character as sons and daughters of the King, God Almighty,  through the daily experiences and models in the Catholic faith. Virtues in Practice is a program for children in grades pre-kindergarten through eight to grow closer to Jesus by imitating His life and virtues. It is set up in such a way that a whole school studies the same virtue each month, to provide a whole-school (and at home, whole-family) focus. The program covers 27 virtues over a three-year cycle, with 81 saints held up as models of the virtues.

Year of Charity

The Virtues in Practice Character Program is made possible by the generosity of The Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation.

The Catholic school’s task is fundamentally a synthesis of culture and faith, and a synthesis of faith and life: the first is reached by integrating all the different aspects of human knowledge through the subjects taught, in the light of the Gospel; the second is the growth of the virtues characteristic of the Christian.” (Congregation for Catholic Education, The Catholic School 37)
