The Mission of Catholic Schools
Catholic schools call young people to holiness and prepare them to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In collaboration with families, Catholic schools teach the values of our faith and tradition, foster experiences of community and service, and provide educational excellence.
Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston are committed to the evangelizing mission of the church to educate and form the whole person in mind, heart and spirit.
"Catholic schools have a fantastic history in all continents. They are even more necessary today, when we consider the manifold crises that education is currently going through.
Therefore, we need Catholic schools that turn globalization toward a spirit of solidarity, of real help for the needy, of respect toward every culture. Only globalization realized on such a basis will truly build up the good of all humanity. Yes, we need Catholic schools!"
