About Us

Sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), National Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Now entering its 47th anniversary year, CSW has traditionally been held the last week in January. This year, we are continuing to promote a second week for Catholic schools to leverage their good news in a national initiative: Discover Catholic Schools Week. 

This year, Discover Catholic Schools Week will be held November 8–14, 2020, and is designated to help schools connect with prospective families, donors, educators and other community members. We want to help showcase what makes Catholic schools the best when families are looking to find the right school for them.

Then, from January 31 to February 6, 2021, we will still host the traditional Celebrate Catholic Schools Week. Schools typically observe the week with Masses, assemblies and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members to celebrate and congratulate.

Make CSW your own and share your ideas with other schools using #CSW21. More information about Catholic Schools Week 2020 can be found online at

This year’s theme is Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.
