As the Principal of Northwoods Catholic School, I am pleased to welcome you to our website and invite you to consider our school for your family. We hope you will find the information about our school and its particular mission both helpful and informative.
Northwoods Catholic School implements the Integral Formation® method of education developed by the Legionaries of Christ. The Legion of Christ is an international congregation of Catholic priests founded in 1941 whose mission is to extend the Kingdom of Christ in our world. Integral Formation is built upon the Christian view of the person and is currently implemented in more than 150 schools and universities worldwide. Integral Formation is focused on forming all dimensions of the person: intellectual, human, spiritual, and apostolic. This formation is the basis for helping all students realize and fulfill the unique mission granted to them by God in their lives. As Principal, I am committed to the growth of each student in all four areas and believe that through working in partnership with Northwood's faculty and staff, along with parents and families, these mutual goals of formation will be attained. Pope John Paul II once said "As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live." At Northwoods, we are dedicated to serving our students and their families, and believe that it is only by working together with the guidance of the Holy Spirit that we will fulfill our particular mission.
This website offers a comprehensive view of Northwoods, but if you wish to truly experience the distinctive spirit of our school, we invite you to visit us. I thank you for your consideration.
Ms. Kristen Thome
