Diocesan Schools Kick Off Catholic Schools Week

Strong Academics, High Graduation Rates, Faith-Filled Environment Show Why
Catholic Schools Work

Catholic Schools Work. That’s the message Catholic Schools across the Syracuse Roman Catholic Diocese are sending out as they celebrate Catholic Schools Week, January 27-February 2, 2013, and kick off the application process for the 2013-2014 school year.

Ranging from Pre-K to Grade 12, Catholic Schools in 22 locations from Syracuse to Utica, Binghamton and Oswego are currently accepting applications for students interested in enrolling in September 2013.

“Catholic Schools are thriving, and this is the time of year where we stop to celebrate all the blessings found in our classrooms across the diocese,” said Christopher Mominey, superintendent of the Syracuse Diocese Catholic Schools. “With small class sizes, 100 percent graduation rates, and a faith-filled environment, our schools offer students individual attention in a safe, secure atmosphere. We hope those in our community who are considering this wonderful option will take the opportunity to find out more about why Catholic schools work!”

Catholic Schools Week celebrations kicked off with the 7th Annual Light the Way Dinner on January 25, 2013, at the OnCenter in Syracuse, to honor those dedicated to Catholic education. More events and celebrations will be held this week in all of the schools throughout the diocese, including open houses for potential students and families. The application process will continue through the spring until classes are filled.
