Catholic Schools

Catholic schools provide a unique environment in which students can experience the support and encouragement of a faith community. Well-qualified administrators and faculty are dedicated to providing each student with the educational experiences that encourage academic excellence, develop the whole person, foster a life-long love of learning and promote an awareness of the needs of the community.

  • Strong Catholic Identity is assured through daily religion classes, a rigorous certification program for teachers of religion, weekly attendance at liturgy and a dedicated faculty and staff that model and teach gospel values.
  • Accreditation of all schools is through the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department as approved by the Texas Education Agency.
  • Academic Excellence is documented using Stanford Achievement Tests which consistently show students to rank academically well above the national average.
  • Parents are seen as partners and are encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education.

The Catholic School Office provides supervision for the 14 Catholic schools of the Diocese of Brownsville.
