Our Core Pillars

Our pillars are what make Charlottesville Catholic School students great!


Accepting, Respectful, Compassionate

Our fundamental task is educating the whole person by integrating Christian values with learning in daily life. Recognizing the uniqueness and individuality of children, we guide them to discover and develop their God-given gifts.


Advocates, Leaders, Stewards

We constantly work to instill a value of service in our students. CCS students are required to complete a set number of community service hours, both in and out of the classroom, often times developing their own project, & exceeding the requirement.


Collaborators, Achievers, Creators

Our teachers develop hands-on, authentic learning experiences in and out of the classroom & lab. We are proud that most of our graduates move on to perform in advanced level courses with the top 10% of high school students.
