St. Croix Catholic's Middle School

SCCS Middle School 

The team of middle school faculty guides students to a deeper level of self-reflection, discovering their God-given talents and limitations, developing leadership skills consistent with God's plan, and contributing to the goodness of God's creation. This effort starts right away in 6th grade and is integrated into every subject and all activities. By the time our students reach 8th grade, they are confident, independent learners who take responsibility for their own education and personal formation. They aspire to make a difference in the world with their scientific, mathematical, and communication skills. They interpret the history and hope of humanity through the lens of the Catholic faith. They serve as leaders of the student body: from running Student Council meetings, to leading morning prayer, to planning and executing all-school events.  

"Man was created for greatness - for God himself; he was created to be filled by God. But his heart is too small for the greatness to which it is destined. It must be stretched..."  Pope Benedict XVI

Prayer for the Courage to Be Great
Heavenly Father, Give me the courage to strive for the highest goals, to flee every temptation to be mediocre.
Enable me to aspire to greatness, as Pier Giorgio did, and to open my heart with joy to Your call to holiness. Free me from the fear of failure. I want to be, Lord, firmly and forever united to You. Grant me the graces I ask You through Pier Giorgio's intercession, by the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
