  5. Catholic Schools
    The Diocese of Palm Beach is honored to announce its “Something Greater” campaign. Our schools seek to develop the whole student. We invest in the future of our students through strong and structured academics and a focus on faith and moral development –challenging students to think beyond the classroom and make a life-long impact on the Church and community. A holistic education means more than setting the highest academic standards. It also means revealing that there’s more to life than personal success: there’s moral character, and service to the community, and ever-present faith. There’s something greater to pursue that makes a life complete.
