Welcome to the Renewal of Catholic Education

Catholic Education Is in Crisis—and Renewal

More than 100 Catholic schools close every year due to low enrollment. Today, 1.6 million students attend fewer than 6,000 Catholic schools. That’s a 70% decline in enrollment since the peak of Catholic education in 1965.

But dozens—possibly hundreds at this point—of Catholic schools have full enrollment. Many have waitlists of students eager to attend. They have learned how to not only survive in the 21st century—but to thrive.

Catholic School Playbook documents what thriving schools are doing differently to cultivate strong communities of students, families, and educators.

Read the Playbook. Share it with your school. Join the renewal.
