Mission and Values


Humility is at the root of all we do. Recognizing the truth of who we are as beloved children of God, we strive to live authentically by acknowledging our strengths and limitations and our need for God and one another. We keep our hearts and minds open to new learning and transformation. We treasure the charism of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary which grounds our understanding of humility in Mary’s faith, courage, and joy. (Cf. Ephesians 4:2)
We put Humility into practice when:
  • We recognize our strengths as gifts from God to be shared.
  • We are open to growth by listening to and learning from one another, the Earth, and God.
  • We embody the humility of Mary with faithfulness, courage, and joy.
  • We see ourselves in connection with God, the Earth, and all people.
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.
