​Discipline in the Catholic school is considered an aspect of moral guidance and not a form of punishment.  The purpose of discipline is to provide a school climate that is conductive to learning and promotes character development and the common good.

Discipline is maintaned in a classroom or school when students work cooperatively with the principal, the teachers, and their classmates towards class and school objectives.  However, the legitimate interest of the school extends beyond the school day and school hours. ​
