With in-person learning in place at all 25 CEF-supported Catholic schools, students have received the same high-quality, faith-based education, formation, and support Catholic schools are known for - even in the midst of a pandemic. And like the curriculum, CEF students haven’t skipped a beat, with seniors supported by CEF scholarships for low-income students achieving a perfect 100% graduation rate in 2021.
Nearly one in ten Catholic school students across the Archdiocese are supported by a CEF scholarship. And with selfless giving at the heart of our faith, their Catholic education helps them to recognize both the joy of receiving the gift of education, and the joy of giving, too.
Thank you for donating to my school, it really helps our community out. We have really yummy food at the cafeteria that you can try! It's so good. Well all I really wanna say is thanks for all you do."
CEF schools are a statistical bright spot among U.S. Catholic schools.
