One of the most important aspects of religious education is service to others. Each class volunteers on its own outreach project. At an early age, ACS students discover that everyone, even the youngest among us, can make a difference.
Student Mentoring: At Asheville Catholic School, the youngest and the oldest learn from each other thanks to innovative pairings of students in our “Big Friends” program. By matching upper grade students with younger students, little ones receive encouragement and assistance from positive role models, while older students learn about nurturing and responsibility. This program fosters a sense of community for all students.
With our faith as the bull’s eye of our culture, the principles found in 7X7 are the concentric rings surrounding it. 7X7 is our term for the 7 Virtues and the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Simply put, the timeless values within 7X7 make up the fabric of who God designed us to be. We know that if we instill these principles within our students, then they can go on to do just as our mission statement says; Become Christian leaders who change the world.
