Catholic Schools Week
The Center for Catholic Education & Formation is excited to celebrate Discover Catholic Schools Week, taking place November 14 - 20, 2021.
Discover Catholic Schools Week highlights the wonders of Catholic school education; an education that nurtures the whole person: mind, body and soul. It’s an opportunity to learn about a diverse network of schools that offer a spiritually rooted academic experience.
Valerie Mara, Archdiocese of Hartford Superintendent of Catholic Schools, said many new families are turning to Catholic schools in the Archdiocese after discovering what sets them apart.
“A Catholic school experience offers much more than education: there’s something greater here. Our mission is to do our part in creating a world of good. Families turn to us because our students know that they are loved and they in turn love and respect each other and every human life. Our teachers and staff know our students by name—as individuals—and the welcoming, close-knit community we build around them is committed to making sure they are valued, supported and have access to all the resources and tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.”
Discover Catholic Schools Week was created to help schools connect with community members. The goal is to showcase what sets Catholic schools apart, address and break down misconceptions and give prospective families access to the information they need when deciding on the best education option for their children.
