The fundamental purpose of Catholic schools is to advance the educational mission of the Church. Catholic schools educate diverse student bodies to form Catholic, person-centered learning communities; provide quality teaching through traditional and innovative educational programs infused with Catholic Social Teachings; involve students to serve and support parish life and the local civic communities; graduate students who are critical thinkers, productive moral citizens and spiritual leaders; and recognize and appreciate parents as the primary educators of their children.
Rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) is a professional membership organization that provides leadership, direction and service to fulfill the evangelizing, catechizing and teaching mission of the Church.
The Connecticut Federation of Catholic School Parents is committed to educate Catholic school parents and the Catholic school community regarding their rights concerning the education of children attending Catholic schools. To protect, preserve and expand those rights to others and guarantee the children in Catholic schools are provided the public services to which they are entitled, to the fullest extent of current law.
