Join us as we celebrate and reimagine the possibilities

of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Scranton:

CATHOLIC EDUCATION | CHOICE OF A LIFETIME

The Diocese of Scranton is committed to making the exceptional Catholic education in the

Diocese of Scranton more accessible and affordable. While the amount of financial assistance

awarded was greater this year, the need also increased.  There is still approximately $3 million in need that is not funded.  The 2019 ASPIRE Gala will recognize the aspirations and accomplishments of Catholic education in our diocese and raise awareness for the need to support this vital ministry.  Support of this event will raise necessary funding to benefit all of our students in all of our schools in two primary areas: affordability and academic excellence. Therefore, opportunities will be available to provide direct support to families through tuition assistance at this event.

STREAM | CHARTING THE FUTURE

To ensure academic excellence, the Diocese has initiated a STREAM initiative (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math). This innovative initiative allows teachers to plan engaging, cross-curricular lessons that address 21st century skills needed in a global society, which include critical thinking and the engineering design process. In this spirit, Bishop Joseph Bambera recently allocated one million dollars to integrate this new model of learning in all 20 Diocesan Catholic schools, giving over 4,500

K-12 students the preparedness they need to succeed both now and in the future. 

Watch the announcement & learn more in the video posted here.

At our  2019 ASPIRE Gala, each school will showcase their STREAM activities and goals for the year at dedicated display tables. Schools will identify specific support needed to expand their respective academic initiatives and ask for your support in achieving those goals.
