3. Unique Learning Environment: The Influence of Don Bosco

This unique educational environment is based on Don Bosco’s Oratory Model, which sees the school community as a home that welcomes, a school that educates, a church that evangelizes and a playground that builds relationships among its community members. In Don Bosco’s own words, “This system is based entirely on reason, religion and, above all, on loving kindness.”

4. Bosco Brotherhood

The spirit of the Bosco Brotherhood reverberates throughout the entire campus. Visitors regularly experience the Bosco Brotherhood when they interact with our students and find polite, engaged, and well-rounded young men who show genuine concern for their peers.
