Thank You to Our Teachers!

We are excited to join millions across the nation as we not only celebrate but show our gratitude for teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Day! The Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Newark are no exception to the thousands of schools in the United States with outstanding educators. We are truly blessed to have such faith-filled faculty and staff advancing the mission of Catholic Education from early childhood to high school.

We are proud at the Archdiocese that our Catholic School faculty and staff are fully qualified professionals committed to bringing out the best in their students as they grow in knowledge, skills, and values. I know that each member of the faculty and staff at our schools are role models who share their faith, their talents, and their time. Not only do I know this in my heart, but it is in the results. Catholic High School students attend post-secondary education at a rate in excess 98% in the Archdiocese of Newark and are more likely to complete their program of studies. This would be impossible without our dedicated faculty and staff.

Thank you for all that you do for our students. May God bless you and give you the grace to educate each of your children!
