Catholic Education

The story of how important your support is to families who yearn for Catholic Education, but cannot afford it, is a story rooted in the Gospel. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Lk 18:16)

With the Gospel at its heart, Catholic schools provide a loving, nurturing environment where the entire community of parents, teachers, students and supporters are committed to academic and personal success.

The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is the fifth largest Catholic School system in the United States and the largest private or public school system in the state of Ohio. More than 3,100 students receive need-based tuition assistance annually, thanks to the generosity of donors who believe in the value of Catholic Education.
