Celebrating and showcasing our Catholic identity within the hallways of Catholic schools is an essential part of the Diocese of Cleveland mission. Regardless of school location across the eight counties the diocese serves, learning more about the quality of a Catholic education is a great way to embrace our core values, spirit of evangelization and academic success.
The months of December, January and February are a flurry of activity for Catholic schools. Open houses, peer visit days, Catholic Schools Week (Jan. 27 to Feb. 2) and registration events will occur during these months.
Open houses provide a platform for schools to show prospective families what a Catholic education may offer their children. Touring the grounds, seeing classroom technology up close or talking with current students about their involvement in school ministry or social justice are just some of the benefits gained when engaging in visitation events.
“Making connections and receiving an in-depth overview by attending an open house, parent information night or student visitation day is truly beneficial,” said Sue Biggs, assistant superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Cleveland. “The strength of our schools can be found in our shared traditions, Catholic heritage and academic standards. I warmly welcome families who have thought about Catholic schools as an option to join us this winter as we open our doors to the community.”
