Theology

As a Seattle Archdiocesan Catholic high school, Kennedy Catholic's central mission is to educate in the Roman Catholic faith using the United States Council of Catholic Bishops’ National Curriculum Framework.  At the core of the Theology Department is the spiritual development of our students.  In their four years of study, students will focus on the knowledge, attitudes, and values based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.  Service is also an essential part of the Kennedy Catholic experience and an opportunity to put God's love into action. As part of the Integrated Service-Learning (ISLE), students will work to complete at least 30 hours of service during junior year as part of their larger Senior Project.
