Ensuring a 21st Century Education




The Archdiocese of Baltimore announced today the results of an 18-month study of 22 Catholic schools in and around Baltimore. Conducted by consulting firms Ayers Saint Gross, DataStory and Fielding Nair International, the study examined school facilities, enrollment, and projected demographic data and potential areas of growth.

The study was conducted to help guide the Archdiocese's future investments in Catholic education, and further its mission of Catholic education throughout the Archdiocese, for all children, regardless of religion or financial means. The study's timing coincided with the stabilization of system-wide enrollment, which was a goal of the 2010 Blue Ribbon Committee Report on Catholic Schools. READ MORE>

"We are not merely pouring knowledge into brains but we are forming the next generations of young people - body, mind, and spirit-one student at a time; and we are doing so in the spirit of the Gospel and according to the Church's teaching. We do this because we believe, as Pope St. John Paul II taught us to believe, that it is Christ, the Son of God who became one of us, who fully brings to light the dignity and destiny of the human person. And so we are seeking to form disciples, competent disciples, and to give them the benefit of an excellent academic formation, a safe environment when they can grow in virtue, where they can learn how to love God and neighbor, and seek to lead not self-centered life but a life of service to others."
