2016 Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission!

"The Lord is my rock . . . in whom I take refuge."

~ Psalm 18:2

Every year our Diocesan Appeal, Journey of Hearts & Hands, raises $325,000 for capital improvements for our Island Catholic Schools.

For example, these funds were used for the $1.4 million seismic upgrade provided by the Diocese to St. Patrick’s school this past summer, and the $6 million seismic upgrade and expansion of St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Victoria in 2014.

Our Annual Appeal allows us to assist vital education projects—Let's Rock the Mission!

Experiencing Success at 
St. Andrew's Regional High School

St. Andrew's Regional High School, an accredited independent school, offers programming for grade 8 through grade 12. Our mission is to provide Christ centered education of the highest standard, equipping students to be leaders in their chosen profession. Therefore, St. Andrew's offers students a disciplined academic environment along with an opportunity to grow and experience God in a real way. In our classes, teachers challenge students to excel spiritually, academically, artistically, physically, socially and emotionally. All students are expected to follow the school code of conduct which directs and leads students to live a life of service, tolerance and respect. Since 1983, students from Victoria and surrounding areas and from around the globe have achieved success by attending St. Andrew's Regional High School.

Our commitment to learning means we believe in our students and we insist on hard work. We instill a sense of pride and teach our students to be independent thinkers. We start with passionate teachers who specialize in their teaching areas. We recognize that not everyone learns in the same way, or at the same speed, so we keep our class sizes small and encourage a dialogue that keeps everyone involved.

This is how I explain what religion at this school teaches me. Sure I learn the history and analyze the Bible, but I also have been forming a set of morals and values that will go with me for the rest of my life. They are the foundation of who I am.
