Foundational to the Kateri College Catholic philosophy is the belief that human beings are made in God’s image and thus are naturally attracted to what is true, what is good, and what is beautiful.
The College believes that a traditional liberal arts curriculum focusing on the best that western civilization offers is essential for forming virtuous and educated men and women.
The college equally holds that practical, or manual, and intellectual skills are united because the human person naturally envisions with the mind and then shapes that idea with the hands.
The innovative Catholic mission of Kateri College is to offer an education that unites these essential parts of the person.
The union of these currently separated educations in the liberal arts and vocational arts will allow students to develop intellectual alongside manual skills, balancing both dimensions of the human person.
Through this unique education, the Kateri graduate will think critically, speak persuasively, write accurately, choose prudently, and work ethically.
Kateri College’s mission is to graduate men and women without an undue financial burden of debt and who are ready to enter into the adult world understanding that God has created them for “some definite service for which He has not created another.”
