New vision for Catholic schools includes tuition assistance - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

Tuition assistance fund plan is unveiled for Catholic schools

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A vision was unveiled on Tuesday for the establishment of a new tuition assistance fund for Catholic schools in the history of the Archdiocese.

"This vision represents an agenda of growth and expansion," Archbishop Dennis Schnurr said. "Through our vision, we will continue to embrace our Catholic schools, and assure that they remain central in living out our mission of evangelization and catechesis in our local Church."

The plan includes the renewal of the evangelizing mission of Catholic schools, the introduction of high quality curriculum standards, an emphasis on serving all types of learners, the fostering of a culture of strategic professional development for educators, the formation of an Archdiocesan student recruitment plan and the study of areas of potential new growth for Catholic school education.

The plan also addresses the cost of attending Catholic schools.

"During the coming school year, we will partner with the Hubert Family Foundation, which has long supported tuition aid, to raise funds for families in elementary schools on the West Side of Cincinnati. These efforts, if successful, could generate as much as $1 million in tuition assistance that could benefit families in immediate school years. Other, similarly localized efforts may also take place in the years leading up to the launch of the campaign," said Dr. Jim Rigg, Superintendent of Catholic Schools and Director of Educational Services.

There will be a public meeting on Aug. 15 at 6 p.m. at McAuley High School to explain the vision.

A summary of the vision and the entire 38-page document can be found on the Archdiocese website.
