Mission & Touchstones

"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…" Hebrews 10:24

There is no greater or more worthy challenge than educating and nurturing our students to become whole human beings. We use the principles embodied in our mission and touchstones to guide this sacred work.


Eastside Catholic School is a Catholic faith-based educational community where students learn to integrate their thinking and believing in ways that encourage intellectual excellence, nurture relationships and inspire a life of leadership and service to others.


The Eastside Catholic Touchstones were developed over the years by the school community and adopted by the board of trustees, to set forth in more detail how we fulfill our mission.

The human spirit must be cultivated in such a way that there results a growth in its ability to wonder, to understand, to contemplate, to make personal judgments, and to develop a religious, moral and social sense.”Pope John Paul II
