We Embrace The Gift of Diversity

Hallmarks of the Sisters of Notre Dame #5


As a Catholic school and a member of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Learning Community, Stephen T. Badin High School is committed to the Hallmarks established by the Sisters. The fifth Hallmark states - We embrace the gift of diversity. Badin has a strong commitment to expanding our diversity as we recognize that all our students are children of God and the diversity of our student body enhances our school and our community. We believe any student who wants a Catholic education at Badin, regardless of race or ethnicity, should have that opportunity and know they are a valued member of our school.
- Brian Pendergest,
President of Stephen T Badin High School
