Catapult Learning is looking forward to attending the Archdiocese of Washington (ADW) Regional Education Conference at St. Jude Regional Catholic School in Rockville, Maryland. The theme of this years event is “Increasing Student Engagement in the Standards Based Classroom.” Today, the Archdiocese of Washington is home to over 620,000 Catholics. The 95 Catholic schools educate over 27,000 children while service agencies, including Catholic Charities and Victory Housing, have made the Archdiocese one of the largest private social service providers in the region. Every year, thousands of people receive counseling, shelter, adoption and foster care assistance, health care, immigration and legal aid, affordable housing and more through the care of archdiocesan staff and volunteers. New immigrants find assistance at the many archdiocesan ministries serving our diverse community, including the Spanish Catholic Center. Increasingly, adult Catholics are finding new educational and spiritual resources. Parish-based programs and classes, increased opportunities for adoration of the Eucharist, evangelization outreach and small faith communities are filling their hunger to know Christ and their faith more deeply than ever. Although diverse in nationality, Catholics of the Archdiocese of Washington share a common faith and a commitment to reflect Christ in the world through prayer, education and service.
If you are also planning to attend this conference make sure to stop and ask one of our representatives to find out how Catapult Learning can help your educators and their students Achieve Beyond Expectations!
