Catholic Schools Office

The school communities of the Diocese of Jefferson City are today’s servants of God.

They accept the continuing mission of proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ to the world and making disciples of all nations.

The diocesan schools provide quality Catholic education in a Christ-like environment; guiding, enlightening, educating, and nurturing the children in their care.

An educational program is provided where students learn intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, and aesthetic like skills and attitudes. Continual development of the students' ultimate earthly and spiritual potential is the primary design.
