Research conducted over the past five decades shows the success of Catholic schools in every way: spiritually, academically, and communally. The graduates of Catholic schools have been, are, and will be the leaders in our churches and society. Our academic strength is unassailable…in morals, test scores, and achievements we outstrip our public school counterparts. Graduates of Catholic schools have a greater fidelity to Sunday mass, have a keener sense of prayer, maintain pro-life attitudes, have a higher consideration for religious vocation, and support their local church and community both financially and through service projects to a higher degree than non-Catholic school students. Catholic school students make good citizens who are deeply committed to social justice, and who care for the poor and our planet. Many civic leaders both locally and nationally are Catholic School graduates.
