The 29 Catholic schools within the Diocese of Richmond meet the spiritual and academic needs of more than 8,000 students across Virginia. Our schools provide an atmosphere in which students are nurtured in faith with a focus on Gospel values, morality, integrity, and service to others. Students are academically engaged with a rigorous curriculum taught by master educators who are called to their vocation as teachers in Catholic schools. Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Richmond educate the whole child with extra-curricular activities and service opportunities for all students. Our schools seek to engage families and the larger community as effective agents of evangelization.
