Why Choose Catholic Education?

Dear Friends in Christ,

Although our schools offer many different benefits—academic excellence, arts education, enrichment activities, athletics and more—the true value of a Catholic education is that it is a total education. Our schools pursue more than achievements; they strive to reach the whole person, including each student’s soul.

At Maine Catholic Schools, our attention to both knowledge and faith make a Catholic education one of the best gifts you could ever give your children. From preschool through graduation, students in our Catholic schools grow in faith, knowledge, character, and grace, thriving in an atmosphere where they feel respected and loved by their teachers and peers.  

Our families also feel supported as they work to educate their children and instill in them the truth of the Catholic faith.  

We invite you and your family to join us, and prayerfully consider enrolling your child at a Catholic school near you. Scholarships and tuition assistance are available to help make a Catholic school education possible for every family. As a parent, you are the primary educator responsible for your children’s faith. We look forward to partnering with you and invite you to learn more.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Rev. Robert Deeley, J.C.D.
Bishop, Diocese of Portland
