Idaho Catholic Schools
If you haven’t made the decision to send your children to one of Idaho’s Catholic Schools, what is holding you back? The distance? The fact that your taxes already go towards public education? All of those concerns are understandable. Our question to you is, “What do you want for your children?” Catholic schools produce students who are strongly dedicated to their faith, values, families, and communities. While excelling at the traditional subjects of reading, writing, and math as evidenced by continued strong testing scores, Idaho’s Catholic Schools will provide your child something that is uniquely different from what you will find elsewhere in the state: a spiritual, faith-based community.
Our commitment is to ensure that our students’ faith formation experience creates a sense of belonging, cohesiveness, and connection to a greater whole. The security which comes from this sense of belonging is what sets the stage for our children’s academic success, personal and spiritual growth, and ability to realize their maximum potential throughout their lives. What do you receive as a return on the investment you will be making in the lives of your children?
Adults who attend Catholic schools are more likely to:
- Be more informed of diverse views, opinions, and cultures
- Understand that stewardship is a way of life within their communities and in the church
- Attend college and graduate with a degree
- Pursue advanced degrees
- Enter religious life
- Be civically engaged
- Earn higher wages
We ask you to consider joining us in our diocesan schools in the joyful and faith-filled adventure of educating the next generation in authentic discipleship of Jesus Christ. You may still be wondering if you can afford it, but can you afford not to? While there may be alternatives to Catholic education in Idaho, there are no substitutes. (Average tuition K-8 is $3,200 per year with financial aid available.)
