EVENT: Choosing a Catholic High School Education: Preserving Your Child’s Faith in a Secular Society – January 19, 2017

Are you aware that a recent study showed that 50% of teenagers who self-identified as Catholic no longer do so 10 years later?

As Catholic parents, we are responsible for passing on the Faith to our children.  However, in today’s society, many parents
appear to be losing the battle.

YOU’RE INVITED: Catholic parents considering high school options for their middle-school children are invited to attend an event to assist you with your decision-making process.   Learn what you need to know in selecting a high school that will help preserve your child’s Catholic Faith.

Father Bill Baer, pastor of Transfiguration Catholic Church will be master of ceremonies.  Dr. Jamie Arthur, Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic Education Honor Roll manager, will present how CNS evaluates Catholic schools from across the nation for their commitment to Catholic identity and excellence in education.  Headmasters from local CNS honor roll schools will also be present to take questions from the audience.

As Catholic parents, we understand that we must one day give an account of what we have done to help ensure our children’s salvation.  Parents have many educational options available.  While Catholic education has long been recognized as offering an excellent balance in academics and faith, not all Catholic high schools are equal.  This event will help you understand the factors that make some schools stand out from others.
