Catholic schools matter.
Our mission at the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE) is to enhance excellence and increase enrollment in the 78 preschool-8th grade Catholic schools in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area.
We do this by sharing innovative ideas, sound business practices, proven strategies and financial resources to help meet each school's individual goals.
