Our Impact

A Catholic school education is an extraordinary experience for children – mind, body and soul.


Our Catholic schools are known for excellence. They combine academic rigor with high standards of personal responsibility and a commitment to service in safe, nurturing learning environments. Catholic schools provide an extraordinary experience for children: mind, heart and soul. Ask any Catholic school parent why they chose their Catholic school. They may tell you it was the right choice for their child, but more often, they’ll explain it was the right choice for their family. “We found a supportive community,” they’ll say. “We found a new home.”

Our mission is two-fold: to keep CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS achieve and maintain EXCELLENCE while increasing student ENROLLMENT. In 2015-16, we made many great strides toward a BRIGHTER future!
