 Education is about more than test scores and academic outcomes. Where can your child get prepared for the next level of learning and develop a readiness and resilience that will stay with them for their lifetime? Catholic schools provide an exemplary education for students of all faiths in a nurturing environment that supports each child’s development as a whole person.
1.Your child will be part of a community
We believe that young people flourish when they are part of a community. Our Catholic schools are made up of students of diverse faiths, races, ethnicities, talents, and interests. With 37 different Catholic schools from grades PreK-12 in Dallas and beyond, students can find a community that truly feels like home.
2. Whether in a classroom or online, your child will receive an exemplary education
A Catholic education unlocks every student’s potential, and forms students to be scholars who embrace a love of learning. Across the state, students in our Catholic schools outperform their peers on SAT and AP tests. Across the nation, Catholic schools students demonstrate higher academic achievement than students from similar backgrounds in public schools. Whether learning online, in the classroom, or a mix of both, each of our Catholic schools has a robust e-learning platform that keeps students engaged in the curriculum and community.
3. Your child will be embraced as a whole person, not simply ranked by test scores or grades
Our Catholic school curriculum and culture are built on the understanding that children are more than their academic success. National studies show that Catholic school graduates are more civically engaged, more tolerant for diverse views, more likely to vote, and more likely to volunteer in the community.
4. With smaller classes, your child will be known and supported
Smaller schools and classes give our Catholic school students a more personalized learning experience. Students can flex their leadership muscles through range of clubs and activities, student-led learning, and local and national academic, artistic, and athletic competitions. Teachers can more easily identify opportunities for students to receive academic enrichment, reading and math support, or other learning interventions, and maintain open communication with parents.
5. Your child’s physical and mental wellbeing will be a priority every day
Student health and safety have never been more important. Each of our Catholic schools is working with local, state, and national medical professionals to establish appropriate precautions designed to prevent the spread of illness, and to care for students’ mental and emotional wellbeing amidst challenging times.
