Our Lady of Victory School – Mission Statement & Philosophy

Mission Statement

Our Lady of Victory, a Pre-K through Grade 6 Catholic School, fosters spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others.  We empower students to be lifelong learners, dedicated to living out Catholic values.


Our Lady of Victory School is a family of believers in Jesus Christ.  We share the traditions and history of our Catholic faith in word and action with each other, the Fergus Falls Community, and our broader Catholic Communities.

Our Lady of Victory School provides a safe, caring environment for learning in which the unique talents and gifts of all children are celebrated.  We offer instruction and assessment that meets the needs of the individual child.  A variety of instructional strategies are implemented to help all students succeed and reach full academic potential.  We believe that learning should be engaging, challenging, and a meaningful part of a child’s life.  We strive to actively involve students in their learning and facilitate the development of critical thinking skills.

We foster responsibility in students for their attitude, behavior and learning.

We promote the dignity of each person through respect of one another and encourage good stewardship of God’s earth.

The professionals who staff Our Lady of Victory support and value each other.  We are dedicated to helping children become successful lifelong learners.  We also believe that a child’s faith formation and academic growth is most successful when there is collaboration and communication between the school and family.
