Greetings in Christ!

Children’s hearts are delicate, and their consciences are incredibly impressionable.  This is why so many Catholic School families choose to send their children to one of our sixty-six schools.  Our teachers proclaim Christ’s love for each individual while openly praying for and with their students.  Within Catholic Schools we work so each person knows the virtue of hope and is able to combat the evils of temptation.  Enlightening a child’s heart as well his or her mind is at the core of everything Catholic School educators do.
