"From preschool through 12th grade, we are committed to academic excellence, and we partner with parents to instill values in young people for life.
Today’s Catholic schools are more affordable with State and local scholarships, in many cases tuition is covered at 100%.
We believe every person is a gift from God and we inspire them to make a difference in the world.
All K-12 students in Ohio NOW qualify to receive a state-funded scholarship that could cover a portion or, in some cases, the full-cost of their Catholic school tuition. This amount could be as much as $6,165/year for children in grades K-8, and $8,407/year for children in grades 9-12. A child’s specific EdChoice Scholarship amount depends on your family’s 2022 gross annual income and size.
Similarly, each of our Catholic Schools offer substantial tuition assistance to their respective families with demonstrated financial need.

The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland uses NWEA’s MAP as the diocesan-wide assessment tool for all of our elementary schools. MAP® GrowthTM measures what students know and informs teachers what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s performance, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance–whether a student performs on, above, or below grade level. MAP is administered three times during the school year, allowing educators to adjust their instructional approach to continually meet the needs of their students.
The diocese believes we all learn better, Together. Parents and prospective families are encouraged to learn more about our inclusive learning environments.
