Institute for Catholic Schools

What We Do

Founded in 2009, the Institute of Catholic Schools (ICS) works with local dioceses and private individuals to provide the resources necessary to expand programs and sustain excellence in Catholic education long term. The Institute is an active member and participant in Catholic Higher Education Supporting Catholic Schools (CHESCS) under the auspices of the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). We welcome the opportunity for new partnerships to develop and foster Catholic education initiatives.
