Welcome to the Office of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Las Cruces!
We appreciate your interest in Catholic schools where faith, knowledge and service are at the heart of our educational mission.
As a parent or guardian, determining the right choice for your child’s education is one of the most important investments you will make for your child’s future. With that said, why choose a Catholic education? In making a decision for Catholic education you are opting for more than a building or textbook. Students receiving the gift of a Catholic education have the opportunity to experience education in the fullest sense of the word. Catholic Schools, as a ministry of the Church, assist parents in the formation of the “whole child” spiritually, physically and academically.
Surveys from the National Catholic Education Association reveal that parents continue to choose a Catholic education among the following reasons: faith formation, high academic standards, values-added education, and safe school environment. (Source: National Catholic Education Association) Life for a student attending a Catholic school is one that is imbued with faith formation, rigorous academics, extra-curricular programs and a dedicated staff committed to the well-being of each child. Our Catholic schools have enjoyed a long history of success in preparing students for the present and future by providing a Christ-centered environment where each child may grow spiritually and develop their individual gifts.
The Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Las Cruces are accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA). WCEA accredits Catholic elementary and secondary schools in nine western states (26 (arch) dioceses) and the US Territory of Guam. WCEA was established in San Francisco in 1957 and has a long and successful history of assisting school improvement through the accreditation process.
We invite you to contact any of our schools for a tour or contact the Office of Catholic Schools for more information.
