A Catholic School Principal's Guide

The present opportunity to more effectively empower Latino families through Catholic education represents an exciting new chapter in the narrative of American Catholic schools. As millions of Latino children across the United States face the steep hurdles of poverty and unequal opportunity, we must respond with both imagination and urgency to serve this growing population. Catholic schools are uniquely positioned to address this reality, and there is arguably no factor more critical to the development and implementation of an effective Latino outreach plan than the school leader.

We hope that this user-friendly guide, which is a compilation of tangible ideas and concrete strategies compiled from Catholic school principals who have been successful in this endeavor, provides some helpful suggestions as you work to more fully engage Latino families in your Catholic schools.
