The Department of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Orange serves the mission of building the church of tomorrow by supporting schools that provide students with the best Catholic faith formation and the skills and knowledge to live lives of goodness, service, and success. Our schools are forming the faithful future of the Catholic Church. The department works to help these schools grow and flourish and to make Catholic school available to the largest number of Catholic families possible.
A Welcome Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Orange! Our goal is to provide a strong faith-based, academic education to all families. We provide a unique opportunity and experience with a focused, moral based curriculum built on a foundation of Christian love, respect and social justice thus providing the preparation for real life experiences. Our schools employ the latest research-based methodology and have become leaders in technology integration. Schools are fully accredited by both the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) both of which employ a rigorous accreditation process. Our goal is to meet the needs of every child. With this in mind, our inclusive philosophy is geared to meet the needs of a wide variety of learners. As tuition based schools, we work with families to help as many students as possible by providing tuition assistance as available. We encourage you to use this site to locate schools in your geographic area and discuss enrollment options with the site principal. Tours are always available to see what a Catholic education can do for the life of your child(ren). May God bless you in seeking the best education for your child.
