The Cleveland Diocese has 20 secondary schools of varying sizes and locations, from Elyria to Mentor and as far south as Akron. United in the common mission of the formation and transformation of young people, each school operates independently, having unique charisms that are reflected in their varied curricular offerings, service opportunities, and co-curricular activities. Similarly, the schools each vary in their expectations for admissions and placement as well as their supports for student learning and social needs. Each school’s annual tuition is set independently, just as the schools have differing sources of funding and financial aid. Five are directly operated by the Diocese of Cleveland, and 15 others are owned and operated by religious orders.
All 20 schools are focused on holistic education and characterized by strong cultures of high expectations and support. These forces intertwine to produce academic results, such as a combined 99% graduation rate, with 97 percent of our graduates enrolling in higher education upon completion, and ACT results that outpace the state average. In addition to a rigorous core, these centers of excellence feature specialized academic programs, such as innovations in STEM education, pre-medical education, computer science, business and entrepreneurship, film, and broadcast journalism, as well as quality co-curricular programming and a strong ethos of local and global service.
