The mission of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Allentown is an essential part of the fulfillment of the educational ministry of the Roman Catholic Church. Its primary goal is the ongoing formation of the Christian person by developing the spiritual, intellectual, social, cultural, emotional and physical gifts of the students entrusted to our care.

The schools of the Diocese of Allentown continue a tradition of academic excellence and faith-formation in safe, respectful and caring environments conducive to learning.

In 36 elementary schools, seven high schools and three special learning centers located throughout the five counties of  Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Northampton and Schuylkill Counties, our schools provide opportunities for academic excellence in caring, faith-filled communities for over 12,000 students of all faiths and backgrounds.

The Diocese has instituted Safe Environment Programs for students in our schools and parish religious education programs and for their parents to ensure, as much as humanly possible, a safe environment for each child entering our educational system.
