"Mission Goals

1. Catholic Identity
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington create a Christ-centered environment through the integration of Catholic tradition reinforced by Gospel teachings in the shared standards for curriculum, instruction, social interactions, liturgies and service programs. Consistent with our tradition, Catholic Schools enhance the role of the family as primary educators of children in the ways of faith.

2. Educational Excellence
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington foster the growth of the whole student, through a commitment to a contemporary curriculum centered on the social justice teachings of the Church. Catholic Schools are renewed through continuous assessments and professional development for faculty and administrators. This ensures that the highest standards of knowledge, pedagogy and technology are demonstrated.

3. Access and Equity
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington welcome all families. Programming includes, but is not limited to, socio-cultural and ethnic diversity initiatives, inclusive education practices, and curriculum accessibility. Catholic Schools strive to develop and locate resources necessary to serve those who seek a Catholic school education.

4. Service and Leadership
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington prepare students to be stewards of their faith and leaders in reflection, service, and social justice. A strong academic foundation, coupled with leadership opportunities, supports the development of the love of God and respect for self, the community and the environment."
