The Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Palm Beach offer a strong, competitive academic curriculum that provides students with a well-rounded educational experience and emphasizes our Catholic identity. We are committed to the development of the whole child – moral, spiritual, academic and physical. The Catholic education curriculum also involves teaching our faith and traditions to our children in their daily classroom and weekly in our parishes through Catechism classes. Our schools play a vital role in the formation of future leaders in the Church, the community and business world. Parents choose Catholic schools because they emphasize academic enrichment and moral and spiritual development for their children.
Our Catholic schools continue to implement Strategic Vision 2020: Charting a Course for Excellence which was promulgated in September 2013. The Strategic Vision provides direction and purpose for our work in Catholic education through the year 2020. Throughout the 2012-2013 School Year many people from across the Diocese of Palm Beach were involved in the development of the Strategic Vision 2020. Three consultants from the Alliance for Catholic Education at the University of Notre Dame guided us through this strategic visioning process.
The Diocese of Palm Beach consists of five-counties and has 19 schools which include two preschools, 14 elementary schools and three high schools. View the Superintendent’s Message about our schools here.
