Welcome to a unique Catholic experience!

Catholic schools have traditionally been the most effective way to pass on our faith to future generations.

In an exceedingly complex world, we offer the simple realities of a Catholic education: values that bring lasting peace and happiness. 

We center our education on the spiritual and secular dimensions of our lives. Our schools focus on service within and outside the school community and give our students a sense of belonging to a global community. 

Serving the needs of Catholic education in 13 counties of northwestern Pennsylvania the diocese, its parishes and institutions operate 23 elementary, 3 middle and 7 secondary schools with a total enrollment of nearly 7,700 students. 

Our schools are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and are members of the National Catholic Education Association.
