Why Choose Catholic Schools

You want what is best for your children, whether that means their education, faith, or health. Catholic Schools provide a unique environment that allows students to grow in their faith while performing at high academic levels.


The community found within a Catholic school is nurturing, spiritual, and inclusive. Your children will be surrounded by dedicated educators, parents, and advocates who will guide them on their unique journey. Learning and care are not limited to within the school walls but continue outside of the classroom as well.


When you invest in a Catholic education for your children, you are instilling religious values that will guide them for the rest of their lives. Every day, children and youth in Catholic schools have the opportunity to learn about the person of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, a Catholic education prepares students to be good stewards of God’s gifts and active people of faith who serve others, participate in their faith and civic communities, and make a difference in the world around them. Catholic schools welcome students from a variety of ethnic, religious, and social backgrounds: all are welcome.


Faith and academic excellence form the core of a Catholic school education. Students emerge from Catholic schools with a robust liberal arts education supported by technology. Students learn decision-making skills, develop high levels of literacy in language arts and mathematics, apply inquiry-based experimentation and problem solving, and build understanding and appreciation for world history and cultures. Students score higher than average on standardized tests and gain the tools to become lifelong learners.

Tuition Assistance

An investment in a Catholic school education will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life.

What Our Families Have To Say

We usually go to St. Rita for Mass, and the Catholic Education Foundation came and informed us about St. Rita School. They were very welcoming in trying to get Hispanic students involved in Catholic education. Diversity was a factor for sure.
