Catholic schools sow seeds of good character and achievement in youth

School News

 “Faith, Community, Service.” These are the words of focus as we celebrated Catholic Schools Week from January 29 through February 4. Hallmarks of the educational experience for our students are “educating the head, the heart, and the hands.” We journey with our families and our students in nurturing their Catholic faith, encountering Christ through community, and witnessing that faith with multiple opportunities to serve their local church or civic community through service projects. 

 There are 30 Catholic schools in the Diocese of San Bernardino serving almost 7,500 students from preschool through 12th grade. Over 500 faculty and staff strive to partner with parents in providing a quality, Catholic education where Christ is the center of everything we do all day long. 

 What does a Catholic education in our Diocese provide? For one, a solid foundation for every child that is supported by spiritual nurturing, expectations that help them reach their potential, and academics that put them ahead of the curve for higher education and career paths beyond.

 In our Catholic schools, you’re basically getting the best of tradition and innovation. Our children are our most precious resource, so to invest in Catholic education is to invest in the good citizens and future leaders that we want to see in our communities.

 Please do all you can to learn about and support the Catholic Schools of our Diocese of San Bernardino.
