Catholic Schools

Mission

As part of the educational mission of the Catholic Church, Catholic schools exist to instill faith values in students and to create a desire to make a positive difference in the world. In addition to quality academic programs, opportunities are provided for members of the school community to grow in their relationships with God, the Church, themselves and others.
 

Vermont Catholic Schools

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. Vermont’s Catholic schools look forward to a future of continued growth as they prepare students in spirit, mind and body to become citizens and leaders.

Academic excellence plays an integral role in Catholic school 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. Vermont’s Catholic school 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.

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