The Portrait of a Padua Academy Graduate

While your daughter's high school journey is just beginning, we want to share with you where she will arrive in four short years.  We look forward to partnering with you to provide your daughter with the challenge and support she needs to achieve her full potential.

Our graduates:

  • possess an understanding of God’s love and companionship as informed by the central tenets of Catholicism and with an appreciation for other faith traditions.
  • grow in a personal relationship with God, which enables them to act with compassion as they approach the challenges of modern society with insight from Catholic teaching.
  • possess a repertoire of educational skills that empower their success: they are effective communicators and collaborators, proficient writers and researchers, and critical thinkers who cultivate a tenacious work ethic and a keen sense of global awareness.
  • thoughtfully question information that is presented to them and seek to learn more.
  • recognize the value of diverse voices, and enter into dialogue as they seek both to understand and to be understood.
  • actively involve themselves in ongoing learning, as they effectively adapt to, and lead within, an evolving professional landscape.
  • value sisterhood, a relationship through which they learn humility and the deep value of community.
  • act as engaged citizens who are examples of faith in action, as they make informed and positive contributions to both local and global communities.
