Our core values emanate from the life of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, the charism of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, and the Catholic educational tradition.
In response to Frances Cabrini's desire to provide an "education of the heart"—a Catholic, Cabrinian education, centered in Christ and ever mindful of the dignity and contribution of each person— the members of this College community, through a collaborative process, have enunciated these values which exist as a standard for our activities and as a hallmark for all future development.
Education of the Heart is achieved through the core values of:
Respect We strive for a reverence of self and others manifested in trust and appreciation.

Vision calls for:

Community calls for:
The Cabrini College community seeks to maintain an environment of receptivity and hospitality for all and create union while nurturing individual gifts and talents.

At the heart of our dedication to excellence is the desire to be our best in the service of our students and all others.
Since we are an institution of process and constant development, what we are must always progress towards what we ought to be. It is our hope that in our constant effort to evaluate our growth, that we aim for a point of coincidence in which the values that determine what we are become one with what we ought to be.
