Why Catholic Schools?
Catholic Grade Schools: Forming the Whole Student
“Go out into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.” In Mark 16:15, Christ used these words to proclaim the primary mission of the Church — evangelization. Tasked with the tremendous opportunity to help parents lead young hearts, minds and souls to Christ, Catholic schools play an invaluable role in evangelization. Evangelization in Catholic schools requires Catholic formation of the whole student, rooted in the dignity of the human person.
Choosing where to send your children to school is not an easy decision, but Catholic schools are worth it. They encourage excellence inside and outside of the classroom. Dedicated, competent, caring teachers give generously of their time and talents to develop positive learning environments that meet the needs of every student. They create the Catholic classrooms where our children go to encounter Jesus Christ and His love. Catholic schools offer students a community that supports them on their journey toward a life of holiness, providing an extraordinary experience for children: mind, heart and soul.
When children enter our Catholic schools, they are welcomed as a precious gift from God and cared for as a child of God. If you desire a Catholic education for your child, our Catholic schools are ready to work with you to make it a feasible option for you and your family. We’re here to serve, we’re here to help, and we’re here to support you in making the best choice for your child.
