Why Catholic Schools

The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools give parents confidence that their investment in a Catholic School education will support their child's complete development and personal success.


A rigorous, time-tested curriculum taught by committed faculty in a faith-based and nurturing environment results in measurably accomplished academic achievement. Catholic teachings, faith and traditions are integral to a curriculum that reinforces what is taught at home, including virtues of discipline, respect and responsibility. These will provide guidance and inspiration as your child navigates life's challenges.

According to the National Catholic Education Association (www.ncea.org):

  • The top reasons that parents choose Catholic Education for their children are:  faith formation, high academic standards, values-added education, and a safe school environment.
  • Students who attend Catholic High Schools have a 99% graduation rate and 97% college enrollment rate.

The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools embraces four main points of Catholic education:

  • Catholic Faith
  • Rigorous Academics
  • Nurturing Community
  • Family Environment
