Transforming Catholic Education
The Roche Center for Catholic Education forms Catholic school educators to become agents of change who work to create excellent Pre K-12 schools. Through our leadership programs, development of culturally and linguistically diverse schools, sustaining professional education, and research, we strengthen and transform Catholic schools and improve student outcomes.
Research and Resources
The Center's research team designs, administers, analyzes, and presents studies on the top issues facing Catholic education today, including development of the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, Catholic Schools in an Increasingly Hispanic Church, and the design of networks that transform schools to be culturally and linguistically sustaining.
“The Roche Center is a beautiful example of what Jesus calls us to do, which is to live our faith and transform our lives as we get closer to loving others as Jesus loves us. This is the groundwork that allows us to become fully human to each other.”
