Why choose a Catholic school?

Why choose a Catholic school?


Catholic schools are an essential part of the family of the Church. Together with the family and the parish church, they help form and guide young people in the ways of faith.

They support parents as they fulfill the promise made at their child’s baptism; to be the first and best teachers of their child in the ways of faith and bring them up to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us.
