The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2013 is “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.”
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2014 is January 26 to February 1.
Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members.
Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
