A letter to Parents/Guardians and Community Members from Bill Crist, Superintendent of Catholic Schools
The Catholic School Office is proud of the work of its 21 diocesan and parish schools. The office serves as an administrative and educational resource for all of our schools. All policies are developed within the confines of the mission of the Diocesan School Office, which establishes the parameters, policies and regulations that govern the entire school system in conjunction with authority of the lay boards.
Our Mission Statement
The Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Syracuse share in the evangelizing mission of Jesus Christ to love and be of service to God and one another. Together with our families, communities, and parishes, our schools provide an education rooted in the Gospels that is "living, conscious, and active". Students witness and are taught values and ideals that are in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. We empower our students to live their faith with compassion, integrity, and respect for all life and the diversity of our world.
Our schools are faith-centered communities focused on promoting academic excellence while developing a strong moral conscience and embracing Catholic social teachings that enable our students to meet the lifelong challenges and demands of our rapidly changing world.
