ARCHDIOCESE OF DENVER

Catholic Schools

Proverbs tells us, “Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.” (Prov. 22:6) The formative years of elementary and secondary education offers parents the best opportunity to prepare their children to answer the universal call of holiness. What better way to do this than through Catholic education. The 35 schools of the Archdiocese of Denver seek to provide rigorous academics, engaging extracurriculars, and a Catholic environment to bring students into a relationship with Jesus Christ. We form intentional disciples, young men and women who are prepared to be saints and leaders in our communities.

Its World Down Syndrome Day! Today we celebrate the students in our schools who have Down Syndrome, and the gift they are to our schools, their families, and our world. 

One of the ways people around the world celebrate these special people is by wearing crazy sox!  At Blessed Miguel Pro Catholic Academy they did a great job with this fun way to celebrate and mark the day.

Its been said that St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leafed plant, to illustrate the Christian teaching of three persons in one God when he preached. Now when you look at a shamrock, youll see it in a different way, as a wonderful reminder of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three in one!  How blessed are we?

Congratulations to the graduates of our very 1st cohort of our Catholic Educator Formation Credential Program, a program created by the Institute of Catholic Liberal Education to help provide credentialing to new teachers. Itโ€™s an 18-month long program featuring five courses on content and pedagogy rooted in Catholic philosophy. Denver was the very first archdiocese to introduce the program, which is quickly spreading across the country. 

We had a lovely graduation ceremony on Friday evening. In addition to speakers from ICLE and our own superintendent, Mr. Elias Moo, one of the cohort participants, Katie Gillett, spoke to the group and expressed profound gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the program. New cohorts are already underway!

Our list of graduates from this first cohort includes:

Mariana Ugalde - Annunciation Catholic School 
Alison Armstrong - Assumption Catholic School
Mary OConnor - Bl Miguel Pro Catholic Academy
Yessica Guerrero - Blessed Sacrament
Nicole Jones - Frassati Catholic Academy
Maria Gesicki - Frassati Catholic Academy

Moving to Colorado and looking for a catholic high school that isn't pushing DEI. Any suggestions would be wonderful! Just looking for academics and religion!

What parents are saying about our schools

โ€œWe had other schools that were closer to us that would've been way more convenient. But we chose Catholic School because we absolutely love the administration, my son absolutely gushes about the current classes he's taken, his friends, the curriculum, and the subject matter and his teacher..โ€
Parent of an Enrolled Student
" I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else for school because this place aligns with my family values and I know I can trust the curriculum here."
Parent of an Enrolled Student
โ€œOur kids started in public school and we always had a desire for Catholic school and we ended up switching because we just wanted that extra part of our faith and that environment for our children to have the Catholic faith be a part of their day to day. And that was something they desired as well.โ€
Parent of an Enrolled Student
