Values

Messmer students, parents, alumni, educators, supporters and board members unite around and act upon our enduring values – our four pillars.

Faith

Our lives are an act of gratitude to God for the gift of life and the grace that sustains us. Parents have the right to choose a faith-based education for their children. We call our students to serve others generously through their chosen vocations.

Knowledge

We expect proficiency in intellectual and life skills. We challenge ourselves to seek truth throughout our lives.

Leadership

We are accountable for our integrity. We commit to lasting change. We instill character through our example.

Service

Providing an excellent education to all children is a matter of justice, rooted in the dignity of the human person. Fulfillment of our mission uplifts the entire community, especially for those who deserve a pathway out of poverty. We commit to serve others throughout our lives.
