New Governance

Under the old model, most Catholic schools were run by a pastor and principal and supported by the local parish. In years past, this was the ideal for strong Catholic schools. Witnessing the effect of growing financial pressures placed on parishes, families, and communities, we created a new model for Catholic school governance.

Shifting oversight from a parish to a regional board, our schools are now shepherded by a board of business, education, and religious leaders. Now our principals and teachers can focus 100% on the education of their students.
