The Department of Catholic Schools provides competent leadership and effective resources for the elementary and secondary schools of the Archdiocese. Working as a system of schools, this office works directly with principals and/or pastors to strengthen Catholic identity, curriculum and assessment, accreditation, marketing, personnel, school committees, and administrative/teacher professional development.
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit integrate faith and values into every part of the educational experience. Whether in the classroom, on the athletic field or in the chapel, our students learn to think and act according to the mind and heart of Jesus Christ.
We provide a second home for students where morals and values are supported by educators who also serve as role models in faith.
Catholic School students are challenged to achieve their full potential. Data shows our students score higher on standardized tests than their public-school counterparts. Nearly all Catholic School students move on to attend college.
Our goal is to educate students wholly, in mind, body and spirit. We offer that through solid academics, after-school activities and opportunities to worship and practice the faith. A Catholic education gives students a strong foundation as members of society and the Catholic community.
