What is National Catholic Schools Week?
Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of
Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in
January and runs all week, which in 2021 is January 31 – February 6. The
theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2021 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Schools typically observe
the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other
activities for students, families, parishioners and community members.
Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education
provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our
communities and our nation.
