Cardinal Kung Academy is committed to the spiritual formation of the students by providing frequent access to the sacraments, Eucharistic adoration, devotions, classes that begin with prayer and opportunities for corporal and spiritual works of mercy. The Academy protects its Catholic culture and identity by being faithful to the Magisterium in its teaching and standards, by employing only practicing Catholic teachers who are willing to sign an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium, and by the integration of the Catholic faith across the entire curriculum in a balanced, wholesome and faithful fashion.
"What then is the distinguishing mark of the Catholic school? The most distinctive characteristic is the ordering of knowledge in an atmosphere wherein the spiritual and supernatural are properly related in the hierarchy of values. Catholic education is based on the reality of the supernatural and its primacy in the total scheme of things. The values, goals, and ideals of the natural order are subordinate in Catholic eyes to those of the supernatural order.
Within the Catholic school environment, the student acquires a depth of conviction that his supernatural faith is not something apart but is related to the entire texture of life. He acquires moreover, a Catholic attitude, a Catholic outlook on life, based upon the firm knowledge of his duties and privileges as a follower of Christ. He gains pride in and love of his Christian heritage. The function of the Catholic school is not primarily to teach the formulas of the Catholic religion, but to transmit a culture, an indispensable element of life, a dimension of our existence, as much a part of man as his hands."
- Father Arthur C. Kiernan
