        Cathedral School of Saint Mary was founded in 1866 and is the longest, continuously running Catholic school in Texas.  While the building, curriculum and faculty have changed over the last 147 years, the values we seek to instill in our students remain the same.  The school makes use of a blended learning model which incorporates technology into every class.  Blended learning at Cathedral School of Saint Mary is a differentiated curriculum that enriches the student learning experience through teacher-student interaction, technology and hands-on interaction. Students in grades 3rd through 8th are provided with a school-issued laptop to use during the school day.  Small student-teacher ratio allows teachers to meet individual needs and assist students in mastering material.

        Holy Family Catholic School is located in the northwest part of Austin, Texas on a beautiful 20-acre campus within the Texas Hill Country.  We serve over 500 students from preschool through the eighth grade.  Our school is a regional school that holds a close association to seven area parishes, offering priority enrollment to qualified students.  Holy Family Catholic School works with parents to nurture the growth of the whole child – spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.  Our school is Catholic – promoting the teachings of the Church and inclusive of diverse cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.  We seek to promote the development of these values by:

        • Fostering a commitment to know, love and serve god and one another (spiritual)

        • Encouraging each child to attain his or her fullest potential (intellectual)

        • Guiding students to become conscientious, successful members of a global community (social)

        • Respecting and celebrating each child’s individuality (emotional)

        • Promoting a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle (physical)

        Our school offers a curriculum stressing a challenging standards-driven academic program that seeks to prepare graduates for the most rigorous courses available in the high schools of their choice; a strong religious education program that equips graduates with a moral compass to last through their adolescent years and beyond; a climate of mutual respect and responsibility that fosters in graduates the ability and the will to be the servant leaders of tomorrow, and the educational programs and activities which promote self-respect and positive lifelong attitudes toward personal health and fitness.  Holy Family holds firm to our four core values which define our identity and culture and are the fundamental beliefs that guide the daily life of the school.  The core values, which are reflected in the goals, are Catholic identity, faith formation, academic excellence and stewardship.

        The Mission of St. Mary’s Catholic School

        The Mission of St. Mary’s Catholic School is the commitment to academic excellence, and the spiritual development of our students toward a life of prayer, service and love.

        The History of St. Mary’s Catholic School

        St. Mary’s School was founded in 1897 under the name of St. Mary’s Academy by Father Heckmann, pastor of St. Mary’s Church.  Under his direction, with the active support of a dedicated group of parishioners, Divine Providence Sisters guided the pupils for several years.  The Divine Providence Sisters withdrew in 1912 and not until 1919 could teaching sisters be found to continue their good work.  Sisters of the Congregation of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament from Houston, Texas, began their mission at St. Mary’s School in 1919 and had a presence in the school until the retirement in May 1995 of long-time librarian, Sister James Philip Davison.  In 1974, Mrs. Loris Edwards became the first lay principal.

        Today, the school is staffed by lay teachers who, together with the clergy, parents, and students, work for its uninterrupted growth and success to the greater honor and glory of God.

        San Juan Diego Catholic High School opened in August 2002 after Archbishop Gregory Aymond recognized the acute need for Catholic, college preparatory education in Austin. San Juan Diego Catholic High School (SJDCHS) is modeled after Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, where students work in entry-level positions in the corporate world to earn part of their tuition. San Juan Diego Catholic High School is popularly known as “The School That Works!” SJDCHS graduated its first class in 2006 and 92% of its alumni pursue postsecondary studies.

        San Juan Diego Catholic High School provides highly motivated students the opportunity to earn a Catholic, college preparatory education enriched by participation in a corporate work study program.

        As a community of faith, we believe that a Catholic, college preparatory education, combined with a corporate work study program, creates spiritual, intellectual, and professional growth for the students we serve. We provide a Catholic education that transcends economic barriers and is accessible to all. We believe that each of our students is a unique gift from God, with the potential to be transformed and to transform others. We value our students, their families, and the rich culture that they bring to our school community. We are committed to shaping the young hearts and minds of our future leaders.

        Since its founding in 1894, St. Joseph Catholic School has grown from a one-room school house to a comprehensive school system that includes three campuses:  The Early Learning Center (ELC) provides infant care through PreK3, the Elementary Campus educates students from grades PreK4 – 5th grade, and the Secondary Campus encompasses the Junior High and the High School.

        Although the school has changed over the past 120+ years, one thing has remained the same—our commitment to providing quality, Catholic education—spirit, mind, and body.  We take very seriously our mission to form the whole person in the image and likeness of Christ.

        St. Joseph uses a three-pronged approach to forming and educating students:  faith formation, rigorous curriculum, and extracurricular activities.

        Our solid, faith-based education is open to children of all religions. Re­ligious instruction is provided daily, and students from grades PreK-12 attend Mass twice weekly.  But sharing and exploring our Christian faith is not confined to the chapel or the theology classroom. Seeing God’s hand in all areas of study, be it science, social studies, math, or music, is part of the daily experience for teachers and students at St. Joseph School.

        The education at St. Joseph Catholic School provides a solid foundation and springboard to the future.  At the secondary level, students are required to take at least two years of Latin, and they have the opportunity to earn college credit through the Dual Credit program with Blinn College.  St. Joseph High School graduates have been accepted to some of the most prestigious and highly ranked colleges and universities in the country.

        In addition, students and their parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of activi­ties that promote and encourage the values of respect, responsibility, and service. The student service pro­gram, a requirement for graduation, further instills the value of student leadership and service.

        When you choose St. Joseph Catholic School for your family, you will discover a lively, family-oriented environment where education, faith formation, and the individual needs of each child is valued.  Give us a call to arrange your personal tour.

        In 1972, the only Catholic high school in Austin closed. Ten years later, Austin was the only US major city without a Catholic high school. A small group of parents and Catholic lay leaders led by Dr. Leonard Dolce commissioned a study that revealed the Austin community would enthusiastically support such a school. In 1984, St. Michael’s Catholic Academy opened its doors. It was one of the first Catholic schools in the nation to be established entirely by lay people. The land and the school are not owned by the diocese – a striking departure from typical Catholic schools. Although the Diocese of Austin has been extremely supportive, lay people have assumed full responsibility for the school. Since the school’s beginning, trustees, parents, faculty and staff have labored to realize its founding vision: to be a first-class Catholic secondary school that nourishes the minds, bodies and spirits of its students, preparing them for a challenging college education and a Christian adult life. St. Michael’s Catholic Academy is a college-preparatory school founded by laity within the Diocese of Austin to serve a diverse student body. Combining academic excellence with faith formation and co-curricular learning opportunities, St. Michael’s prepares the whole student for leadership, service and decision-making consistent with Catholic values.
