Education with a Higher Calling

Catholic education and formation in the Archdiocese of St. Louis features an expansive coalition of schools that allow our children to develop a sense of purpose and value, receive a higher quality education, join a welcoming community and feel secure in a dynamic future.

Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis is rich in history, with its establishment 200 years ago by St. Rose Philippine Duchesne. A coalition of schools serving over 50,000 students (PreK-12) within an 11-county area, our schools allow our children to develop a sense of purpose and value, receive a higher quality education, join a welcoming community, and feel secure in a dynamic future. The educational experience provided to our students and their families is rooted in a higher calling from God to honor and celebrate the gifts He has given us.

Mission Statement
