Spotlight on Schools

These segment provide updates on Catholic education in our Diocese, highlighting uplifting and inspiring activities taking place in our schools. Click on the videos below to hear first-hand from the students, faculty, and educational leaders who make our Catholic schools shine. 

Spring 2024

In this edition, learn how some local students from St. Mary of the Assumption School in Mentor help us understand Jesus’s final hours and others from St. Joseph Parish School Avon Lake teach us about a Blessed teen … plus, see some budding young scientists shine brightly!

Classical Catholic Education

St. Brendan School in North Olmsted is the first under the umbrella of schools that fall under the Cleveland diocese to migrate to the Classical Catholic Model of Education. Watch the video to learn how the approach has elements that literally date back to Socrates.

Fall 2023

Here’s a glimpse at four of the Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Cleveland that recently earned the prestigious Blue Ribbon designation.

Spring 2023

Spring 2022

In this edition of Spotlight on Schools we highlight the work of students at Holy Name High School and Saint Joseph parish school in Avon Lake.

Holy Name students celebrate their "movie-making" success with the student produced film, "The Game That Was Never Won." The documentary highlights the excitement when the 2019-20 boys varsity basketball team won the district championship game but was unable to play in the regional semifinal tournament after it was canceled due to the pandemic shutdown. The Cleveland International Film Festival included the film in a special streaming category and it was also shown at a film festival in Los Angeles. 

Students at St. Joseph Parish school in Avon Lake received lessons in gardening and serving the community by planting beets as part of the school's new learning garden. The school started the garden with a grant from teh Ohio Catholic Federal Credit Union. Produce from the garden went to ministries, Lorain County hunger centers and food pantries.  

Fall 2022

Magnificat students buzz into action on campus in effort to protect bees as they recognize the important role that they play in the environment. The Bee Committee, which is a part of the Seeds of Service Club, spent eight weeks learning about bees and how to care for them as they got a beehive up and running on school grounds. The hive began with 12,00 bees and now houses about 75,000. The students completed their first honey extraction at the start of teh school year.
