Why Catholic Schools?

Catholic schools are good for children, families, communities, the nation, and the Church. And today more than ever, they need our support. Why should we champion Catholic schools? Here are four reasons—and there are certainly more!

  • Catholic schools provide religious and moral formation in a world badly in need of Gospel values.
  • Catholic schools excel in offering high quality education, particularly to those most in need.
  • Catholic schools are the responsibility of the entire Catholic community.
  • Catholic schools are essential to the health of the Church and our democracy—they nurture the soul of our nation.
