Catholic Schools Week Logos and Themes

Current Theme
The current theme (to be used through CSW 2020) is "Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed." This theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country. Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, we, as educators, are growing with them. In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.
The official CSW logo brings the theme to life. The open book made up of multi-colored pages symbolizes how all areas of Catholic schools blend together, with faith — symbolized by the cross — at the forefront. Catholic schools are vibrant, dynamic and excellent.

Future Themes
The CSW theme changes every three years so that schools can remain energized in their marketing messaging without having to create new materials every year. Our last theme was voted on by a representation of 1,000 members from Catholic schools, including pastors, presidents, principals, teachers, parents, superintendents, board members, consultants, partners and friends of our common mission. This collaborative decision truly showcases that CSW is made possible by the participation of the entire Catholic school community.

We need your help creating the next CSW theme! NCEA invites you to submit your idea for the next theme which will be introduced in February 2020 and used to promote Catholic schools beginning in Fall 2020. Great themes emphasize how we celebrate and discover Catholic schools as a nation. We are accepting ideas for the theme through September 15, 2019.
