Archdiocese of San Antonio Catholic Schools

About our Catholic Schools
"Providing students with the academic and spiritual benefits of a faith-based education." 

Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio are dynamic learning communities serving nearly 9,000 students in Pre-K through 12th grade. As communities of faith, our schools are called to be witnesses to the teachings of Jesus Christ and bring that love and inspiration to our students and their families. We go beyond academics – shaping and transforming students through faith and building leaders with integrity.

We also provide students with a rigorous education that fosters academic excellence, creativity, emotional growth, integrity, and leadership. From S.T.R.E.A.M. to Spanish Immersion, Montessori to Fine Arts, each school has its own unique offerings and school communities.

As you will see in each of our schools, the mission of love and learning prepares each student to go out into the world and accomplish the great things God has planned for them.

Dear Friends in Christ,

For more than 150 years, Catholic schools serving the communities of the Archdiocese of San Antonio have introduced children to a world of spiritual formation and academic learning, providing them with an education that enables them to become faithful, productive members of their communities.

Rooted in Gospel values, rigorous academics, and a commitment to nurturing the uniqueness of every person, our schools give children the invaluable gift of a complete education—fostering Catholic formation along with intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth. 

The spirit of community is strong in each of our 35 schools. Administrators, teachers, and parents work together to create a positive environment where children are valued, encouraged, and guided to become the young men and women God created them to be.

If the cost of Catholic education is a concern, please contact the administrator at the school you are considering. Scholarships are available to help make a Catholic education possible for every family.

We invite you to join us! Take a moment to browse our website to learn more about our schools. We value the unique charism and culture of each campus and invite you to schedule a tour to find the option that best fits your family's needs and feels like home.

We look forward to partnering with you and your child on this journey.

May God bless you and your families!
