A Message from the Superintendent of Catholic Schools Mr. Henry Fortier

The cornerstone of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Orlando is their Catholic identity. Our schools proclaim the Gospel message within an academic environment of excellence that challenges students to be creative and critical thinkers who integrate faith, moral leadership and compassionate service in order to create a more just and humane world.



You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lamp stand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. Matthew 5:14-16

The Catholic schools in the diocese must be a place where our students and families encounter the incarnate Christ in every subject, activity and person they come in contact with throughout the day. It is because of our mission of ensuring a strong Catholic identity in our schools that we must work collaboratively to build communities that are academically excellent and empower our students to reach their full potential spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially.   

Under the leadership of Bishop John Noonan, a strong proponent of Catholic education, the schools in the diocese will continue to excel and grow in preparing the next generation of service-oriented Church and civic leaders.

Peace and Blessings!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fortier Signature
