As an inclusive Catholic community of faith, we respect and support our students, faculty and staff and their sense of belonging in an increasingly diverse world. At SHC, such respect is grounded by our mission and carried out through our Lasallian Vincentian Catholic educational traditions. In these efforts, we prepare our students as future leaders to model our credo, "Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve".
