The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2013 is “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards.” The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2013 is January 27 to February 2.
The 2013 theme supports the recent launch of the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, that ensure the effective operation and responsible governance Catholic schools across the country, thus promoting high academic standards and Catholic identity. The logo designed for the week illustrates a chart of steady growth culminating in the highest achievement of all, a cross representing the faith that underscores all Catholic education.
