MDSA named to 2018 Catholic Education Honor Roll

Mount de Sales Academy was recently recognized by the Catholic Education Honor Roll as a 2018 Catholic Education Honor Roll School, previously known as the Top 50 Award.  Mount de Sales has received the designation as a Top 50 Catholic High School since the award’s inauguration in 2004.

Schools selected for this distinction must exhibit commitment to a strong Catholic identity and mission; prudent employment practices; first-rate teaching philosophy; and a well-rounded focus on raising up students who are not only academically prepared, but are also educated in civic responsibility and their Catholic faith.  Since 2017, the Honor Roll criteria conform to the Principles of Catholic Identity in Education, derived from Church Teaching and church documents related to education.

The Catholic Education Honor Roll was created by The Acton Institute in 2004.  The Cardinal Newman Society assumed the program in 2012, consistent with its mission of helping Catholic families and promoting faithful Catholic education.
