                              WHY CATHOLIC SCHOOL?

Choosing a Catholic education is an important and emotional decision.
 As parents, we want our children to be educated with family values and sense of belonging in a nurturing environment.

Most of all, we want our kids to rise above the rest. We want the best for them and we want them to BE the best.

In our Catholic Schools throughout Northwest Iowa, we challenge every student to higher academic standards.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS – Statistically, our students achieve higher test scores nationally and on the state level, compared to their public school counterparts. Our teachers challenge students to work hard, think smart and serve others. Our teachers, staff and administrators are focused on one thing – student success (academically, spiritually and emotionally).

RIGOROUS STANDARDS – Students who do well in school have smoother transitions to adulthood and enjoy more success throughout life. Our 100% graduation rate is proof-positive students are benefitting from the rigorous education and nurturing environment we provide.

SCHOLARSHIPS – Find out about our generous tuition assistance at Scholarship Program or call 712-255-7933.

Because we want our kids to be the best, a Catholic education is the best choice.

Patty Lansink
Superintendent of Schools

Catholic Schools Week January 28- February 3, 2018
The theme of our celebration is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, educators are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.
