Recognizing Excellence Awards Gala

The successes of our Catholic schools and their students would not be possible without the selfless support of our committed educators, administrators, clergy, and lay partners in the community. This year, we are holding our first annual Recognizing Excellence Awards Gala at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord on June 22, 2017.

Diocesan Statement on Common Core

The Diocese of Manchester will not formally adopt nor require its schools to develop their curriculum solely on the basis of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Our principals and teachers, however, are expected to be cognizant of all such standards and their impact, especially for two reasons:

1. The content of many textbooks now takes the CCSS into account.

2. Many students in our grammar schools go on to public high schools and we have an obligation to make sure they are prepared for that transition.

Our principals and teachers are intent on providing the best education they can for our students and thus they draw on a variety of resources and programs in order to fashion a curriculum that best serves our students in the context of our schools and their mission in the Catholic Church.

NH Catholic Schools Consecration to Mary

For the first time in the history of Catholic schools in New Hampshire we gathered as one Catholic school community on May 16, 2017 at the Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, NH. Over 6,000 Kindergarten through 12th grade students, faculty, and staff from 27 Catholic schools came together with Bishop Peter Libasci to celebrate Catholic education and to consecrate our entire system of Catholic schools to the Blessed Mother.
