Catholic Education Yields Undeniable Results
Graduating from high school here in the United States is not a given. Students need the guidance of committed teachers and the encouragement of a strong community. The fact that, on average, 99% of students graduate from Catholic schools matters – that’s 15% above the national average (National Center for Education Statistics). When parents and the parish support Catholic education, they can rest assured that students will see their high school years through and benefit from them.
But the impact of a Catholic education doesn’t stop there. Catholic schools are renowned for setting their students up for success in college as well. A full 86% of Catholic high school graduates go on to attend a 4-year college program. Catholic schools provide the foundation needed for students to pursue higher academic learning and many are awarded academic scholarships as well. Academic excellence is just one of the pillars of Catholic education, along with faith formation and community, that makes it worth the investment.
