It's Here! Catholic Schools Week: January 27—February 2

Catholic Schools Week, celebrated nationally this year from January 27-February 2, provides a great opportunity for families to explore the excellence of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford. Parents and prospective students are encouraged to attend a nearby Catholic school Open House to discover the many benefits of a Catholic education.
