As the calendar turns to September, Catholic schools of the Diocese of Trenton are welcoming back their most precious resources – children, faculty and staff. Traditional instruction, cutting-edge technology and innovative advances in teaching will unite with the most important ingredient of all – the sharing of our Catholic faith. Parents, educators and parish communities prepare to send the students off with prayers and the knowledge that Catholic schools will support them academically and spiritually.

“As we welcome a new school year, a renewed commitment is made each day by administrators and teachers alike to provide an educational environment that will guide students who will be tomorrow’s leaders,” writes JoAnn Tier, Superintendent of Catholic schools, in her message for the annual Back to School supplement from The Monitor.
