The purpose of these events is to show how starting children out with a Catholic education will do wonders at an early age. Sometimes, this kind of strict discipline can go a long way.
“Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York offer a unique combination of academic and spiritual development that helps children of all backgrounds get the best start in life. More than 99 percent of our high school seniors graduate and 99 percent of those graduates go on to post-secondary education, making a Catholic education one of best investments a parent can make in their children’s future," said Dr. Timothy J. McNiff, Superintendent of Schools for the Archdiocese of New York. Dr. McNiff added, “Our students learn in an environment where respect, courtesy, and service to others are always part of the curriculum – and they are outperforming New York State and New York City public school students in both Math and English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency standards.”
