Today this takes the form of providing excellent educational opportunities for children. Catholic elementary school graduates in the Archdiocese go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 98%, whereas CPS students graduate at the rate of 53%. 95% in the Catholic schools go on to college. Our graduation rate at St. Agatha is 100%. Faith is the light that guides our lives. It certainly did so for Dr. King. We want you to help your children reach the dream of opportunity through education.
