Discover AND Celebrate Catholic Schools Week!

National Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Now entering its 46th anniversary year, CSW has traditionally been held the last week in January. This year, we would like to take it another step further and introduce a second week for Catholic schools to leverage their good news in a national initiative: Discover Catholic Schools Week. This week, to be held November 17–23, 2019, 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. Then, from January 26 to February 1, 2020, we will still host the traditional Celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Schools typically observe the week with Masses, assemblies and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members to celebrate and congratulate. Make CSW your own and share your ideas with other schools using #CSW1920.

This year’s theme is Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.
