The Sts. Joan of Arc & Patrick School Virtues Program encourages students and their families to become the saints God calls us all to be. The program connects school and home in a purposeful, focused examination of what it means to live a virtuous life.
Every month students and their families are introduced to a virtue. The meaning of the virtue, what it looks like in real life, how we are called to live it and, sometimes, the obstacles that prevent us from living that virtue are discussed in the classroom and at home.
