Philosophy

Spalding Academy is a ministry of service provided by St. Michael’s Parish in Spalding, Nebraska.  As a Catholic educational institution, we seek to provide a Christ-centered community for the instruction of young men and women.  Our K-12 school assists parents in their role as the primary teachers of their children in the ways of faith.  We believe that creating a spiritual environment together with sound academic instruction and extra-curricular activities will provide the formation students need to reach their full human potential.  To teach and live as Jesus did, parents, faculty, administration, students, and the parish community model Catholic Christian values through service, discipline, and sacrifice.  We believe in incorporating the God-given uniqueness of each individual into the shared life of the community.  Catholic school education helps children learn to respect themselves and others, and appreciate the beauty and wonder of the world around them.
