Our Catholic Schools

"Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever-present teacher in its classes, the model of its faculty, the inspiration of its students."

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Portland are vibrant learning communities serving more than 2,500 students in Pre-K through 12th grade, at 10 elementary/middle schools and two high schools.

Our highly qualified faculty and staff are dedicated to nourishing young people by helping them achieve more in school and life. Our schools inspire students to feel welcomed and cherished for their unique gifts as they become faith-filled Christians, creative and critical thinkers, lifelong learners, and contribute confidently to our Church and communities.

Students at our schools receive a total education. We address not only the educational, physical and emotional needs of our students but also their spiritual needs, developing the whole person, created by God to know him, love him, and serve him.     


The mission of Maine Catholic Schools is to strengthen the Catholic Church and to create an environment in which the faith is preserved, nourished, shaped and communicated to foster values that give meaningful direction to the Christian family and society. This is accomplished through dedication to the growth, development and formation of the student by proclaiming the message, creating community, providing service and celebrating worship so that our students will become faith-filled Christians, creative and critical thinkers, life-long learners and confident contributors to our Church and communities.
