Catholic Schools Center of Excellence

On A Mission

Catholic schools matter.

Our mission at the Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE) is to enhance excellence and increase enrollment in our 79 preschool-8th grade Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in Minnesota.

We do this by sharing innovative ideas, sound business practices, proven strategies, and financial resources to help meet each schools’ individual goals.

We invite you to join us.
