Schools’ Catholic Identity Part of Revitalization Efforts

The National Catholic Register is reporting on a Catholic school in Arizona which was on the brink of closing a few years ago but bounced back with a change in school management and a renewed commitment to its Catholic identity.

And it is not alone. While many dioceses are shrinking the number of schools across the country, there is much reason for hope in cities like New York and Philadelphia, the Register reports.

Just last month, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia handed over management of more than a dozen parish elementary schools to a newly formed nonprofit, Independence Mission Schools, which is committed to an affordable, effective Catholic education and seeing astounding results.

This follows a revolutionary move last year that saw 17 archdiocesan schools put under the management of the Faith in the Future Foundation, to great success.

In New York City, similarly innovative experiments in Catholic education are taking place.
