The Answer is YES!

This fall, together with our funding partners, we awarded an astonishing $8 million in tuition assistance to 3,700 Catholic elementary students and their families, a record number of families helped in our community. In fact, we now support double the number of students we helped just five years ago. WOW!! How blessed we are because of all of you!

We are inspired to reach out even further across the community and invite anyone who yearns for a Catholic education to come forward and seek our help in providing this great gift that they cannot afford for their children. You can have a Catholic Education for your child. The answer is Yes!

Things about Catholic Schools you might not know about…

Academic Excellence through Faith-Based Learning

Catholic schools are synonymous with academic excellence rooted in faith-based learning, creating an educational environment that blends rigorous intellectual pursuits with moral and spiritual development. With a commitment to fostering both the mind and the soul, Catholic schools integrate faith into every facet of the academic experience. The curriculum not only meets high educational standards but also emphasizes values, ethics, and a sense of social responsibility. Students engage in a holistic approach to learning that encourages critical thinking, compassion, and a deep understanding of their role in the broader community. The integration of faith-based principles into the academic curriculum enhances the educational journey, providing students with a moral compass and ethical framework that extends beyond the classroom. This unique combination of academic excellence and faith-based learning sets Catholic schools apart, nurturing not only intellectually adept individuals but also compassionate and socially conscious leaders ready to contribute positively to society.

Service Learning

Catholic schools are renowned for their commitment to service learning, providing students with unique opportunities to engage actively in their communities and beyond. Rooted in the core principles of social justice and compassion, service learning in Catholic schools goes beyond the conventional classroom experience. Students are encouraged to embody the teachings of empathy and selflessness by actively participating in various community service projects, volunteer initiatives, and outreach programs. These opportunities not only instill a sense of responsibility and civic duty but also allow students to apply classroom teachings to real-world situations. Whether it’s participating in local food drives, volunteering at shelters, or engaging in international mission trips, Catholic schools cultivate a culture of service that not only benefits those in need but also shapes students into socially conscious individuals committed to making a positive impact on the world around them. Through service learning, Catholic schools empower students to live out the values of compassion and charity, fostering a lifelong commitment to service and social responsibility.

All Faiths Are Welcome

One distinctive aspect of Catholic schools that might not be widely known is their open and welcoming atmosphere to students of all faiths. While these educational institutions are rooted in Catholic principles and values, many Catholic schools actively embrace diversity and inclusivity. They recognize the importance of creating a supportive and enriching learning environment that welcomes students from various religious backgrounds. This inclusivity not only fosters a sense of unity and understanding among students of different faiths but also allows for a diverse exchange of perspectives, contributing to a well-rounded education. Catholic schools often prioritize teaching tolerance, respect, and acceptance, emphasizing the common values shared among different faith traditions. This commitment to inclusivity reinforces the idea that Catholic schools aim to provide a holistic education that extends beyond religious affiliation, fostering an environment where students of all faiths can thrive academically, socially, and spiritually.

Extracurricular Sports/Programs

Extracurricular sports and programs in Catholic schools are an integral part of the holistic education they offer. These schools recognize the importance of physical fitness, teamwork, and character development, and as such, they often provide a diverse range of extracurricular activities. From competitive sports teams ran by our partner the CSAA (Catholic Schools Athletic Association) to intramural programs, Catholic schools encourage students to explore and develop their athletic talents while fostering values such as discipline, sportsmanship, and resilience. Whether it’s basketball, soccer, track and field, or other activities like debate clubs, music ensembles, or drama productions, these extracurricular opportunities contribute to the overall growth and well-rounded development of students. Beyond the physical and creative aspects, these programs often emphasize the importance of teamwork, leadership, and the pursuit of excellence, aligning with the values of discipline and dedication that are central to the Catholic education ethos. Through extracurricular sports and programs, Catholic schools provide a platform for students to discover their passions, build strong friendships, and develop essential life skills that extend far beyond the classroom.
