Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2022 is January 30 – February 5. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2022 is “Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.

“As a student of E. D. White Catholic High School, I have fulfilled faith by joining clubs like Campus Ministry and Sisters in Christ. These clubs help me to spread my Catholic faith to others throughout the school. Through these clubs I have also been able to surround myself with those who help me grow my faith.”

“As a student of E. D. White Catholic High School, I have fulfilled excellence simply by being a part of the E. D. White family. E. D. White isn’t just about friends; the people in our classes, teams, and clubs build each other up. The teachers and students all try to build each other up to become better.”
– Wesley Templet, grade 12
“As a student of E. D. White Catholic High School, I have fulfilled faith by doing all that I can to bring me and others closer to God. I keep myself on a prayer schedule and help others not get lost. The biggest ways I do this is through prayer, advice, and Brothers in Christ.”
