On Monday, October 17, the The Archdiocese of St. Louis released new information regarding Catholic education – including additional resources and a new survey request.
The Archdiocese is examining all of its parishes, schools, ministries and agencies, evaluating our effectiveness as a local Church in proclaiming the Gospel. The goal is to make All Things New by the Power and Joy of the Gospel.
As we continue to prayerfully discern our future, Archbishop Rozanski is seeking additional input and feedback from Current School Families and Faculty about their Catholic school experience with questions about tuition, class sizes, teacher compensation, etc. Also, an overview of the enrollment and subsidy rates provided to all our Archdiocesan elementary schools as a whole, and to our specific school, has been made available on the All Things New website and included here for convenience. Please note that the enrollment numbers represented for St. Margaret of Scotland in this overview do not include preschool; with those classes added in, our current enrollment sits at 450.
This survey can be taken online and will be available to be completed through November 1. We encourage every Pre-K and K-8 family to complete this IMPORTANT survey. For any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This new Catholic Schools survey is running parallel to the Parish Listening Sessions. Please note – there will be no announcement or discussion on schools at the listening sessions in November.
