Discover more about Catholic Education

Catholic schools offer a vibrant and varied education to students. Our schools and colleges come in all shapes and sizes - including primary schools, middle schools, secondary schools and R-12 schools.

All of our learning experiences are grounded in Catholic values and beliefs.

Many schools also offer specialty areas such as the arts, science or vocational education.

We encourage you to explore our website to find a school that suits your child’s needs.

CESA's Living Learning Leading Framework

Thriving People, Capable Learners, Leaders for the World God Desires

The Living Learning Leading Framework gives us a foundation for understanding what we do in Catholic Education – who we are, what we value and how we partner with our families to ensure our students thrive.

At the heart of our framework is our commitment to our students and our understanding of all people – we see them as ‘thriving people, capable learners, leaders for the world God desires'.

The Living Learning Leading Framework underpins everything we do, ensuring our students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive in a rapidly changing and complex world.
