Faith in Catholic Schools

At Diocese of Des Moines Catholic Schools, faith is incorporated into the daily curriculum to provide a foundation for success. Faith formation promotes a relationship with Christ and teaches students how to live the Gospel through love and service to others. While Catholic faith is the cornerstone of our schools, we welcome students of all faith traditions.

Our students experience:

Christ and Catholic identity are center focuses of our Catholic education curriculum. While our students explore faith through academic classes, scriptures, sacraments, morality, church history and traditions we encourage families to carry these lessons over into the home. While not all students who attend Catholic schools are Catholic, all do share experiences of faith, values and moral character development in the Catholic tradition.
