Office of Catholic Schools

In the spirit of servant leadership, the Office of Catholic Schools provides vision, direction, and supervision to Archdiocesan Catholic school communities in order to assist them in the achievement of their mission to proclaim Christ and form authentic disciples.

The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools give parents confidence that their investment in a Catholic School education will support their child’s complete development and personal success. A rigorous, time-tested curriculum taught by committed faculty in a faith-based and nurturing environment results in measurably accomplished academic achievement.

These will provide guidance and inspiration as your child navigates life’s challenges.

New Superintendent

In November and December of last year, the Archdiocese of Denver conducted a search for its next Superintendent of Catholic Schools. The hiring process was overseen by the Moderator of Curia, Fr. Dollins, and a committee that included principals, scholarship professionals, and other Archdiocesan leadership. While originally opened only to applicants from the Archdiocese, ultimately, candidates with school leadership experience from other dioceses were considered and interviewed. After a thorough process and deliberation, Mr. Elias Moo, principal of St. Rose of Lima, has been selected. He will finish the school year in his current role, though, he will begin to work limited hours with the Office of Catholic Schools at the end of January. Mr. Adam Dufault will continue to serve as the Interim Superintendent for the remainder of the school year. He and Elias will collaborate on all significant decisions and matters. Please join us in congratulating Mr. Elias Moo.
