Why Catholic Schools?

St. James Kids


Duluth Area Catholic Schools offer an education that is not available anywhere else in the Twin Ports. Other schools may talk about having high standards, but when you consider an education rooted in the love of God and the teachings of Christ, there simply are no higher measures of excellence.

We believe God is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. He is present and welcome in our classrooms, hallways, and on the playgrounds of Duluth Area Catholic Schools. We treat each student with respect and dignity, as we challenge them to explore the world of knowledge with a moral compass.

Our teachers have chosen to work at Catholic schools because they want to go beyond teaching math, science, and geography-they want to help children grow in the Catholic faith. Of course, we also boast outstanding test scores, strong preparation for honors and advanced placement classes, and hands-on access to the technology students need to succeed in today's world.
