Mission and Philosophy



Bishop García Diego High School is an independent Catholic co-educational secondary school that welcomes students of all faiths and provides them with the spiritual, personal, and intellectual knowledge to meet the enduring challenge of realizing their God-given potential in a multi-cultural society.



Bishop García Diego High School promotes a Christian environment open to students of all faiths. The school empowers young men and women, educated in Catholic beliefs, to implement the Gospel message in today’s diverse society. With service as a primary tenet, students are called to foster concern for others and are challenged to cultivate the leadership skills necessary to serve humankind and become mature, well-balanced adults.

Bishop recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children. School personnel work with them toward the common goal of preparing the students to assume their multiple roles as members of a family, church, and profession. A rigorous college preparatory curriculum and co-curricular activities are the means of attaining this goal.

The school’s philosophy is implemented by a community composed of the Board of Trustees, Leadership Team, Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents and Alumni, and is expressed through the school's core values: Respect, Perseverance and Compassion and through the Cardinal Standards: Faith, Expression, Action, Service, Thought and Self-Reliance.
