"Lift High the Cross."
Pacelli is first and foremost a Catholic Education community. While we are immensely proud of our excellence in academics and our small intimate environment which allows us to know and plan with each student and family in ways that larger institutions cannot, it is clear that our ultimate goal and Christ's charge, is to shape students' minds and hearts for Him.
This faith support becomes increasingly more important as students continue through their Pre-K to 12 education. Too often, there is a disconnect with what we know to be developmentally true in terms of students' decisions being shaped by peer pressure and our culture and families decisions about when "enough Catholic faith education is enough."
Having a Pacelli Catholic Schools Graduation in your child's toolkit equips each student with the prayerful watch and support of not just your family, but also of peers whose families are walking the same challenges and faith walk as yours. Our environment of faith, academics, and service is a stronghold where teachers, administrators and peers walk with each child helping them to be accountable to God and one another, to discern how to be the kind of faithful educated adult we pray each one will become. This is a task too large for families to undertake alone and we are humbly grateful to serve alongside you in this endeavor.
Thank you for the gift of your children. Raise the Standard of Catholic Education with us and spread the word about Pacelli to your neighbors, friends, alumni, the Austin Community, and the world! Together we grow in faith; making a better world possible for your children and one that is pleasing to our Father.
In Jesus' Name, and in Peace,
Pacelli Catholic Schools President/Principal
