Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Austin is a community of parents, teachers and administrators, clergy and religious with values rooted in the Catholic Faith, all working together to provide our students with a strong foundation for life. The Office of Catholic Schools, in service to principals and communities, assists Catholic schools in the formation of its members in their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social lives. The schools, in turn, provide opportunities for its students, families, faculty, staff and board members to grow in a commitment to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. The office also coordinates accreditation, curriculum, testing, training and policy development for the approximately 571 teachers serving in the schools. All of the diocesan schools follow an accreditation process that is prescribed by the Texas Catholic Conference, approved by the Texas Education Agency, and directed by the diocesan superintendent’s office.
