Jesus commissioned His apostles to teach and make disciples. Mindful of this twofold mandate, Catholic schools in the Diocese of Joliet provide formation in the Catholic faith as well as superior academic education to students of diverse backgrounds.
Our Christ-centered education nurtures a personal relationship with Jesus and service to others. Our whole child approach integrates Catholic doctrine, prayer, sacraments and moral decision-making with a focus on academic achievement and improving and maintaining mental and physical health. Working in partnership with parents and parish communities, Catholic schools prepare students for success in further education, a productive career and a life eternal with God.
The Diocese of Joliet Catholic schools are composed of two early learning centers, 38 elementary schools and three high schools. Nondiocesan-operated schools located within the geographic boundaries of the Diocese of Joliet include two elementary schools and five high schools.
