Catholic Schools

Who We Are

Schools in the Diocese of Burlington have provided quality Catholic education for more than 140 years. Today, they continue that heritage in 13 schools. Nearly 2,300 students are served by more than 250 professionals who are committed to excellence in education. The spirit of God permeates classrooms, creating a positive, nurturing environment in which each individual, every day, can learn and grow and feel unique. Catholic schools combine compassion with a strong discipline that enables students to concentrate on learning, become self-disciplined and respect other people. We look forward to a future of continued growth as we prepare our students in spirit, mind and body to become citizens and leaders.

Academic excellence plays an integral role in our programs. All schools in the Diocese of Burlington are fully accredited by the State of Vermont. The schools have entered into the process of accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Our teachers are licensed by the State of Vermont and are certified as catechists by the Diocese. Through advanced courses and professional workshops, they stay current in their fields of expertise.

Our schools consistently perform above the national average on standardized tests. The dropout rate for students in our Catholic high schools is 0 percent, and 95 percent of our high school students go on to college.

Our Mission
