2016 Celebrating Catholic Schools Virtues Gala

Please Join Us for the 2016 Celebrating Catholic School Virtues Gala

The Celebrating Catholic School Virtues Galas have raised over $1 Million since the inaugural event took place in November of 2008. Thousands of students and their families have been supported and benefited from the generosity of the CCSV Gala Donors and attendees over the years of the CCSV Gala. 100% of the CCSV Gala proceeds have been turned around and made available for tuition assistance.

As we enter our ninth year, the need continues to be great and we ask again that you prayerfully consider joining us to support this cause within our Diocese.

What Makes Celebrating Catholic Schools Virtues Worth Your Time, Talent, and Treasure?

The Diocese of Columbus unites 106 Catholic Parishes in 23 Ohio counties. The Diocese includes 53 Catholic schools (42 elementary and 11 high schools) in 15 counties. All of he schools are chartered and accredited bit the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association and the Ohio Department of Education.

Diocesan schools are a ministry of the whole person, helping students to develop intellectually, spiritually, socially, and morally. The schools foster wisdom and understanding that produce future leaders and adults who understand the obligations of human life, the dignity of the individual, and the shared responsibility for our common good.

Diocesan schools provide a safe, structured community for students. Teachers in k-12 Catholic schools are degreed and licensed educators in the State of Ohio. They meet rigorous and ongoing professional development standards for licensure renewal. All teachers, volunteers, staff, and coaches are fingerprinted and must pass rigorous background checks.

The average cost of educating a student continues to place pressure on tuition in all schools, and the most recent challenges presented by the economy are causing families to cut corners to meet basic needs.
