For over 160 years, Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis have partnered with families as the premiere way to provide excellence in education. We are proud of the history, success, and proven benefits of Catholic schools for students and families, our nation, and our Church.

Today, Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis continue to build on our tradition of excellence in education. Our Catholic schools seek to offer an education that forms the whole child. Demanding but achievable academic standards and extensive study in core subjects prepares students for high academic achievement in high school, college, and beyond. The academic program kindles a love for learning and wonder. It embraces the true, the good, and beautiful found in all academic disciplines and fosters a habit of thinking that critically engages ideas. A commitment to developing virtue in the classroom and in extracurricular activities equips students with the essential habits necessary to grow into adulthood living responsible, productive, and holy lives. Our apostolic outlook helps students to respond generously to their vocation to serve God, others, and the common good, and a strong foundation in spiritual formation helps students to encounter Jesus and the Church.

The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis serves over 26,000 K-12 students in 79 Catholic elementary schools and 13 Catholic high schools. Additionally, over 3,700 students are enrolled in our rapidly expanding preschool programs. As we look to the future, we anticipate a growing need for qualified principals and teachers to join our continued pursuit of excellence in Catholic education.
