Mission and Values

Mission Statement

Salpointe Catholic is a college-preparatory high school in the Carmelite tradition of prayer, community, and service. We offer our diverse student/parent population a holistic education which fosters faith, encourages the pursuit of excellence, develops servant leaders, affirms the dignity of individuals, and promotes global social justice.


Salpointe is a Catholic school guided by the Carmelite tradition of education in the context of prayer, community and service.

The learning environment is shaped by faculty and staff dedicated to exemplifying and teaching a life-long commitment to academic, intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, artistic and emotional growth.

Salpointe explicitly calls on one another, students and educators alike, to demonstrate conscious awareness of God’s loving presence; to respect the inherent dignity of each person; and to seek to live our shared promise to act justly and compassionately as servant-leaders in an ever-changing world.

Carmelite Charism

Dedicated to excellence and responding to the challenges of our times, our Carmelite schools offer a college preparatory, Christian education in a Catholic environment. We provide a holistic model of education, emphasizing the spiritual, intellectual, moral, physical, and social development of our students. In the spirit of the Gospel and in the Carmelite tradition, the schools engage the students in three interlocking dimensions: community, prayer and service.

The Carmelites of the Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary stand in solidarity with Catholic Social Teaching, which highlights building a more just society and living in holiness.

We live in allegiance to and walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ as we commit ourselves to the dignity of the human person by respecting people of every gender, race, ethnic heritage, creed, sexual orientation and financial resources. The principles of family, community, participation, dignity of work, option for the poor, and care for God’s creation inspire our communities and ministries to always teach the truth of our history and work for social justice.

As a result, we do not support unjust systems of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, human trafficking and slavery of any kind, and the injust system that does not promote the dignity of the human person that is a true gift from God.

May our God, through the intercession of Elijah the Prophet and Mary the mother of Jesus Christ, continue to transform us as we are called to conversion of heart, mind, body, and soul.
