Families will have an opportunity to meet principals, teachers and current parents and students from the 14 participating Catholic schools, learn about the schools’ success – over 80 percent of the 2,400 students read at or above proficiency – and about the affordable cost and tuition assistance.

Faith in the City schools offer a values- and faith-based environment that focuses on academic achievement and success, respect of self and others, and community building and cooperation. The schools use a standards-based curriculum in addition to enrichment and extracurricular activities. They are located in the Southeast, Northeast and Northwest quadrants and are open to students of all faiths.
