Walsh Announces National Photo Contest in Celebration of Catholic Schools Week
What's New, 2013-01-24
Since 1974, the last week of January has marked the national observance of Catholic Schools Week. This year’s theme "Catholic Schools Raise the Standards" focuses on three priorities that make our Catholic schools stand out from other educational institutions “Faith. Academics. Service.”
Walsh University is proud to be a part of the Youngstown Diocese community which supports 8,000 students through 28 elementary and six secondary Catholic schools (including St. Thomas Aquinas and Central Catholic high schools in Stark County). In addition, the Diocese provides services to more than 15,000 Catholic students not enrolled in parochial schools through parish religious education programs.
