“Catholic School Management calls us to be the best we can be. All of us – even the finest schools – occasionally get into a rut. Even if your finances and enrollment are the best, your organization can be in a rut. Catholic School Management calls forth the energy from schools to step up to the plate and to raise the bar. They have a genuine concern for the good of our schools. They are convinced that Catholic schools have a place in our country and they are out to prove it.”
Former Assistant Superintendent, Diocese of Oakland, Oakland, CA
