Discover Catholic Schools Week
November 12 - 18, 2023
We continue promoting a second week for Catholic schools to leverage their good news in a national initiative: Discover Catholic Schools Week (DCSW). The weeklong DCSW is November 12 – 18, 2023, and is designated to help schools connect with prospective families, donors, educators and other community members. We want to help showcase what makes Catholic schools the best when families are looking to find the right school for them.
Each year, NCEA relies on valuable feedback from Catholic schools across the country on how we might help improve the Celebrate Catholic Schools Week (CSW) experience. In 2016, we introduced a “year-round marketing” mentality to Catholic school communications strategy. The purpose of this strategy is to have schools take the spirit (and theme and logo) of CSW and implement into a full year’s marketing plan.
From January 28 – February 3, 2024, we continue the traditional Celebrate Catholic Schools Week. This is the annual celebration of Catholic school education in the United States. Schools typically observe the week with Masses, assemblies and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members to celebrate and congratulate the great work and good news of Catholic schools.
Catholic schools may choose to participate in both or one – and that is okay! The important thing is to join in on the national celebrations in a way that works best for you. Make CSW your own and share your ideas with other schools using #CSW2024.
