The Impact of Catholic Schools

Following are a few interesting statistics on the reality of a Catholic education.

Those who attended a Catholic elementary school are more likely than those who did not to say the following are “very” important to their sense of what it means to be a Catholic:

  • Helping those in need (54% who attended Catholic schools compared to 44% who did not)
  • Living a life consistent with Church teaching (46% who attended Catholic schools compared to 30% who did not)
  • Having devotion to Mary (41% who attended Catholic schools compared to 35% who did not)
  • Receiving the Eucharist (71% who attended Catholic schools compared to 58% who did not)

Those who attended a Catholic high school are more likely than those who did not to say that the following are “very” important to their sense of what it means to be a Catholic:

  • Helping those in need (56% who attended Catholic schools compared to 46% who did not)
  • Living a life consistent with Church teaching (49% who attended Catholic schools compared to 33% who did not) 
  • Meaningfulness of Holy Orders (62% who attended Catholic schools compared to 45% who did not)
  • More likely to believe the Eucharist is most meaningful to them (37% who attended Catholic schools compared to 22% who did not)
  • Men who attended a Catholic high school are more likely to have considered the vocation of priest or religious brother (32% overall).
  • Women who attended a Catholic high school are among the most likely to have considered the vocation of a nun or religious sister (25% overall).

Interestingly, 63% of those who attended a Catholic high school “strongly” agree that they are proud to be Catholic, compared to 54% who did not attend.

And 64% of those who attended a Catholic high school say their Catholic faith is at least “among the most important parts” of their life, compared to 40% of those who did not attend.

Keeping Catholic schools “viable and affordable” leaps out from the data as a pastoral priority.

Catholic Schools’ Impact on Faith Formation
and Sacramental Practices 

 

Catholics who attended Catholic schools are significantly more likely to actively practice their faith, including the reception of the Sacraments. Those concerned about promoting sacramental practice would do well to ensure that Catholic education remains a realistic option for today’s families.
