About Catholic Schools Week

Now entering its 49th anniversary year, National Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. This year the theme for Catholic Schools Week is: Faith, Excellence and Service. As communities of faith, Catholic schools instill in students their destiny to become saints.  Academic excellence is the hallmark of Catholic education intentionally directed to the growth of the whole person – mind, body and spirit.  Finally, service is fundamental to Catholic education and the core of Catholic discipleship.  Service is intended to help form people who are not only witnesses to Catholic social teaching, but also active participants through social learning.
