Our Mission

Independence Mission Schools (IMS) provides a transformative Catholic education that develops students intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually and that provides children of all faiths across the city of Philadelphia the opportunity to learn in a college preparatory environment and grow in a culture of love, setting them on the path to a promising future.

As part of the Independence Mission Schools (IMS) network of 15 Catholic schools, St. Martin of Tours Catholic School is living out the IMS mission by being committed to living the Gospel message of Jesus. We nurture each of our students to become lifelong learners in a global society by preparing our students to apply 21st century skills through leadership, stewardship, and service.
