"Pro Deo et communione ducere et servire... For God and Community, to Lead and to Serve"
Please join us for National Catholic Schools Week, our annual celebration of what makes education at Cedar Valley Catholic Schools outstanding. Starting with Sunday Masses on January 25, we have a whole week of activities planned to show what our students are accomplishing and to celebrate the community we have built to educate tomorrow’s citizens and church leaders.
This year’s National Catholic Schools Week theme centers on community: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”The theme highlights the fact that schools are not only communities themselves; they are also part of many other communities, including families, parishes, towns/cities and our country.
The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options. They are why families make sacrifices to provide their children with a Catholic education.
We hope you will visit our Cedar Valley Catholic Schools during National Catholic Schools Week to enjoy the students’ masses and programs and learn about their faith development and community service projects. Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may be considering Catholic education for their children.
We are so grateful every day for the teachers, staff, board members, parents and volunteers who make our Cedar Valley Catholic Schools a success. National Catholic Schools Week is a good time for all of us to thank them for their dedication and service.
If you are a CVCS Family invite other families to visit our schools and consider enrolling their children in one of our five schools. Together we can make a difference in the future of our children and communities.
Every day at Columbus Catholic High School, we strive to define excellence as we prepare students to achieve success in college, their career and in life. At Columbus Catholic High School, instruction occurs in a disciplined environment of accountability, fairness and sincerity. Valuable life skills, such as critical thinking, communicating clearly and problem solving, are nurtured through a variety of teaching approaches, clear expectations and practical applications.
A Catholic education at our high school fosters the values of human dignity, responsibility, the importance of family, informed citizenship and moral decision making.
