ENSURING OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE
SPRING 2015
The goal of the regional planning process is to collaborate and create sustainable,
excellent academic centers in a faith-filled environment, and provide this exceptional
opportunity to every family who desires a Catholic education for their child.
This is a collaborative effort among our four schools, designed to deliver a state-of-the-art educational
experience and grow the Catholic presence among our communities. The planning process consists of
these teams – local, regional and the Archdiocese, as well as a group of independent consultants on the
Regional Advisory Planning Group who are available to all teams for strategic guidance.

principals, parishioners
and parents from each
