Mission and Values


Recognizing the image of Christ in others, staff and students strive to respect the dignity of each person. All relationships encompass respectful modes of communication and manifest respect for self, others, creation and God. Reverence embraces the whole person: body, soul, mind and emotions. Each person is sensitively aware of the effects of words and actions on others. (Cf. Matthew 25:40)
We put Respect into practice when:
  • We reverence the dignity of every human person.
  • We celebrate our differences and commonalities. 
  • We care for the gift of God’s creation. 
  • We embrace our Catholic identity and the heritage of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary.
Magnificat High School, a girls' Catholic college-preparatory high school, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of the Humility of Mary, educates young women holistically to learn, lead, and serve in the spirit of Mary’s Magnificat.
