Embers is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and character formation and works in partnership with parents, who are the primary educators of their children. Embers sees each student as a child of God — a gift from God — and helps them to acquire knowledge, develop skills, and practice moral behavior.

CGS is a Montessori-based approach to religious formation. Weekly visits to the Atrium supplement Embers' daily religion curriculum in PreK-2nd and provide an environment for children to draw close to Jesus, the Good Shepherd, and ponder the wonders of the Catholic faith at their own pace and within a prepared structure that fosters freedom and independence.
