Considering a Catholic School for your child?
Our Catholic school employees have hearts of stewards; they give of their time, talent and treasure every day. They demonstrate faith, knowledge, commitment, dedication, and professionalism. They answer God’s call to serve.
The Office of Catholic Schools is under the direction of the superintendent who is also a diocesan managing director. The office also includes a director of Catholic school services, a director of curriculum and instruction as well as a Catholic schools coordinator. The boards of trust administrators (pastors) and the trust advisor (superintendent) have oversight and direction of the Catholic elementary schools in service of the trustee (bishop). The superintendent supervises professional and support staff in consultation and cooperation with board of trust administrators.
