Structure

Since 1832, the Transfiguration School has provided educational excellence to successive waves of immigrants and their children. Rooted in the Catholic tradition, Transfiguration nurtures the mind, body and spirit in a family-centered environment to develop thoughtful and responsible learners.

Statement of Beliefs

At Transfiguration School, we believe that:

  • A growing understanding of God, awareness of self and thirst for knowledge; these three educate the whole child – spirit, mind and body.
  • Trust, guidance, understanding and consistent encouragement promote imagination, creativity and exploration which optimize learning in a safe, happy, enjoyable environment.
  • Instructional practices must reflect the different ways and rates in which student learn.
  • As they learn to accept responsibility for their words and actions, students are strengthened at all levels of their growth – spiritual, intellectual, social and physical. Developing respect, responsibility, humor and kindness are essential elements of this growth. An increasing desire for truth and justice in the world is the result.
  • Parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. In planning for their child’s growth and development, a strong partnership between home and school is essential.
  • The high morale of a school’s faculty is a prerequisite for progress, stability and success.
  • Our educational program strengthens patriotism and the values our nation represents.
