Lighting the Way


On August 14, 2012, Archbishop Schnurr released the school visioning plan, "Lighting the Way".

There are six domains to the Vision: Catholic Identity, Academic Excellence, Marketing & Development, Leadership, Finance, and Governance. The vision calls for far more professional involvement from the diocese in helping to manage our schools.  It includes additional training for Principals, Professional development for school employees, Marketing assistance, a financial aid assistance program at the diocese level, and diocese initiated school capital campaign.  The diocese will also work more closely with schools that are having financial difficulties.  Any future closures or consolidations will be decided with the diocese and the school after all efforts to maintain the school has been exhausted.
