Our Core Values
I watch what I do to see what I believe.~ Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ
Integrity means that our actions reflect our beliefs and live up to our moral ideals. We hold all in our communities to the highest academic and ethical standards, both within the walls of our school buildings and as representatives in our communities. As we equip our students with a clear understanding of the moral principles and virtues of the Catholic faith, we instill habits of honesty, forthrightness, and respect for themselves and others.
At Resurrection, we embrace four core values: integrity, humility, hard work and service
Those who humble themselves will be exalted.
~ Luke 14:11
Humility means recognizing God’s presence in every situation and person we encounter, and acknowledging the responsibility we each have to live up to the greatness that God has made us to achieve. We learn to appreciate our own limitations, take responsibility for our mistakes, demonstrate adaptability, and learn from everyone around us. Our humility makes us constant learners who develop our God-given gifts not merely for personal gain but to serve others and build our community.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress.~ Frederick Douglass
Each of us is made uniquely by God for greatness. In order to fully develop the gifts God gave us, hard work provides opportunities for us to sharpen our skills, develop our talents, and strengthen our minds and hearts for life’s journey. Effort, persistence, and determination are essential to learning and success in life. Hope alone does not result in success; we seek to instill in our students a work ethic marked by tenacity, stamina, and zeal.
Only a life lived for others is worthwhile
~ Albert Einstein
At RCPS, we believe that we are made for each other, so we aim to develop young boys and girls for others. When we see God in others, we think less of ourselves and so put others first. Our teachers “fan into a flame the gifts God gave” each child (2 Timothy 1), cultivating their gifts, broadening their understanding of the community and the world, and offering their gifts in service of others.
Education in Virtue
Not just learning, but living the Virtues
As a school embedded with Catholic values, academic excellence, and service to others, we teach our students to be successful both in and out of the classroom. Resurrection emphasizes character development through classroom lessons from the Disciples of Christ, Education in Virtue Program.
