Welcome to the Office of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Gaylord! In our 16 Catholic schools, we strive to help students develop a lifelong love of learning and a firm foundation in the faith. We are grateful that your family is considering a Catholic education, and we are here to help you explore this wonderful opportunity.
The top reasons for choosing a Catholic school often include the ongoing faith formation and access to the sacraments; the personalized learning experience and strong curriculum; and the warm, family-like atmosphere found in our schools. All of these are excellent considerations — our passion truly is investing in students academically, through athletics and extra-curricular programs, and most importantly, in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
We invite you to continue exploring what a Catholic education can offer for your child, and we look forward to walking alongside you in this journey.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Erick Chittle, Ph.D.
Interim Superintendent of Catholic Schools

Curriculum & Assessment
The curriculum in the Diocese of Gaylord upholds Catholic teaching and fosters academic excellence in our students, designed to educate the whole student: mind, body and spirit. For detailed information regarding the curriculum used in the diocese, click to explore curriculum.
Academic assessment is critical in gaining a balanced view of student growth. This includes each student's daily work, performance on a variety of classroom assessments, and the observations and insights of their teachers. These assessments guide both teaching and learning, while maintaining that important decisions about students and his/her education are never made on the basis of a single assessment.

These scholarship opportunities are available from each of our Catholic Schools and their associated parishes.
