In our last blog post, we highlighted how Catholic school students typically outperform their peers in public school when it comes to academics. But that is not the only way that a Catholic education can provide lifelong benefits to a child. Obviously, faith is at the heart of any Catholic school. That is the mission that lies at the center of everything we do in our classrooms. The foundation that is laid in terms of faith at an early age is something that will carry children through to high school, college, and into adulthood. The numbers do not lie. From daily prayer to going to mass to even identifying as a Catholic, children who attend Catholic schools are more likely to practice their faith than those who attend a non-Catholic school.
Here are some statistics that underscore the importance of Catholic education in today’s society:
• Catholic school students are more likely to pray daily.
• Catholic school students attend church more regularly and retain a Catholic identify as an adult
. • Thirty-four percent of Catholic elementary school graduates and 39 percent of Catholic secondary school graduates continue to practice Catholicism into adulthood. This is compared to five percent of Catholics who did not attend Catholic schools.
• Catholic high school graduates are more likely to consider faith as one of the most important parts of their lives.
