Education has been one of the fundamental ways our Church has
served the Chicago-area community for more than one hundred
years. Our schools have educated and formed generations
of Catholic children in our faith. Children of all faiths and
socioeconomic conditions have received the best of educations
in our Catholic schools. Catholic school alumni are everywhere,
making wonderful contributions in the Chicago area and beyond.
The overall strategic goal of the plan is to increase Catholic school enrollment and provide every
student desiring Catholic education with excellent academics
and strong faith formation in an economically sustainable way.
I am grateful to the Archdiocesan School Board who, with the cooperation of the Archdiocesan Superintendent of Schools, Sr. M. Paul McCaughey, O.P., worked long and hard on this strategic plan.
