Portrait of a St. David's Graduate

Class of 2022

The path to graduation for each St. David's student is an individual journey to challenge each graduate in preparation for college and life. So then, how do our mission and core values impact and influence the St. David's experience for our students?

We know that God has set each of our students on a pilgrimage along "a more excellent way" (Romans 12:31), complete with peaks, valleys, contours and obstacles, all unique to each individual student.

We celebrate the distinctive journeys that lead each of them to new heights and depths in their pursuit of faith, virtue and knowledge, knowing that at the end of their time at St. David's, they will be on their way to becoming uncommon people who seek Christ, pursue excellence, lead with humility, persevere through challenges, embrace learning and collaborate generously.

With this uncommon graduate in mind, there are six key characteristics that paint the portrait of a St. David's graduate. Our desire is that each graduate will possess each of these qualities upon the completion of their St. David's studies and will continue to refine, embrace and exemplify them for the rest of their lives.
