Why do we need Catholic schools?
We need Catholic schools because they provide something the world longs for – an education firmly rooted in Christ.
An education rooted in the love of Christ means that our Catholic schools cannot fail to be centers of excellence. They cannot fail because, as St. Paul tells us, "LOVE NEVER FAILS" (1 Cor 13:8).
Catholic schools teach the mind and touch the heart so that students will come to know, love and serve the Lord and one another.
