Welcome To South Jersey Catholic Schools

A message from Bishop Sullivan

Beyond their vital role in the Church’s mission of providing young people with a strong formation in the faith, studies consistently have shown that Catholic elementary schools outperform their public school counterparts in student academic achievement, even when all appropriate background variables have been taken into account. And, the longer a child attends a Catholic school, the greater the impact.

This is due to many factors, including a solid core curriculum, teacher dedication, classroom discipline, and demanding academic requirements. Also, the nurturing, values-based environment of Catholic schools enhances student self-respect, respect for others, future faith life and civic involvement.

  • Excellence in Academic Achievement
  • A Catholic education is a challenging education. High standards, strong motivation, effective discipline and an atmosphere of caring combine to foster excellence, and, a high quality of student performance is supported by the evidence.
  •  Catholic School students score significantly above the national averages on standardized testing.
  •  Research shows that because of a greater emphasis on homework and study, Catholic School students develop more effective writing skills.
  •  Catholic High School students attend post-secondary education at a rate in excess of 95% and are more likely to complete their program of studies.
  •  Catholic Schools have an excellent success rate in educating minority students.
  •  While providing a stimulating and demanding education, Catholic Schools give students a high level of individualized attention and personal sharing. This commitment is reinforced by participation in programs for advanced students and also for those experiencing difficulties in reading, writing, and math.
