East Texas Catholic Schools

Fostering the unique gifts of each child and preparing students for leadership in school, Church and global community, the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Tyler offer a Christ-centered, academically challenging Catholic education.

We invite families to explore the difference that Catholic education makes in the lives of our students by visiting one of our school communities.

Why choose Catholic schools?

The Diocese of Tyler believes that parents are their child’s primary educators. As such, parents have many options in selecting an educational institution for their child. Many schools offer classes in English, math, science, and history. Catholics schools not only provide superior curriculum in these areas, but they do so by integrating faith into every subject. That is the Catholic school difference.

Our goal through our Catholic schools is to provide your child with on-going formation in their faith, to develop each students’ God-given gifts, and to prepare them for success in higher education and the global marketplace. We do this through a challenging curriculum, the support of our parents, and in a nurturing environment.

Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Tyler welcome students of all backgrounds and faiths to experience the comprehensive education of mind, heart, and spirit. Consider your student’s academic career a success story waiting to be written. Consider the possibilities and potential to be realized.
