From the very beginning, we have been educators. Upon arrival to the United States 170 years ago, we began by teaching in seminaries in local dioceses. Later, our seminary doors opened to the public, and our education of university students began.
As Vincentians, we believe education is the key to greater opportunities in life. Many of our educational institutions serve first-generation immigrant families. We strive to provide all students with the opportunity to receive a quality Vincentian and Catholic education. Race, gender, financial background, or societal status should not impact academic prospects. We commit ourselves to providing a Catholic education that is affordable and academically superior.
We also serve in secondary education by investing in the future of charity and service by developing young leaders. Throughout the years, we supported local high schools as teachers, coaches, and instructors. Additionally, we provide after-school and enrichment programs for students. We foster hearts and lives committed to service and giving to others.
