The 2015-16 progress report shows the growth and improvements in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids.  It's short and easy to read, and very impressive.

(5/6)  From the Office of Catholic Schools

Please take a minute to view our Catholic School Referral Form. This new resource will allow you to have a more direct and powerful role in our Bishop’s Catholic School Initiative. With this form you can submit the name(s) of any family in our diocese that is not currently enrolled in one of our schools, but whom you think would be a great fit at your child’s school or any school in our diocese. You have the choice to do so anonymously. We will then follow up with these families and invite them to learn more about the Catholic School difference and the schools in their area.
