CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK 2020
Jan 26 – Feb 1 all-day

The theme for the 2020 Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic
Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The concepts of this
theme are at the heart of Catholic education. Catholic schools are
communities of faith, knowledge and service. Rooted in the
Gospel, our schools are concerned with the education of the whole
child – Spirit, Mind and Body. Faith, knowledge, and service are
three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be
judged. Catholic schools prepare students to take these concepts
beyond their school walls. Students carry with them the wisdom
and integrity gained from their Catholic education to be successful
leaders in their individual vocations. “Historically, Catholic
schools are known for their high level of academic achievement,
moral values, and high graduation rates”, said Karen Ristau, of the
National Catholic Educational Association. “What may not be as
widely recognized are the outstanding successes recorded by
students of low income families and students from inner
cities. That’s certainly a plus for many portions of the American
population”, she noted.
The executive director of the Secretariat of Catholic
Education at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has
also noted that “nearly 30 percent of the nation’s 2.1 million
Catholic school students come from minority
populations. Enrollment of students who are not Catholic
has increased to over 14 percent, an indication that many diverse
families seek the benefits of a quality education with moral
underpinnings.” The 7,094 Catholic elementary and secondary
schools make up over 44 percent of all private schools in the
United States.
Catholic Schools Week is a joint project of the National
Catholic Education Association (NCEA) and the U.S. Conference
of Catholic Bishops. To learn more about Catholic Schools
Week, you may visit the NCEA web site at: www.ncea.org/news/
