To help Catholic schools improve enrollment, retention and the quality of student experience in a focused, sustainable and systematic way, we assist with gathering, understanding, and acting on information from people who care most. Our assessment suite includes School Culture: Teaching and Learning surveys of students and staff, Student Experience survey, Graduating Students surveys, and Parent Feedback survey.
We can use the EWI™ Catholic School Improvement data we are collecting to show the accreditation board that we are making continuous improvements. It validates that we are heading in the right direction.

The Catholic School Improvement Parent Survey granted our Archdiocesan office a deeper understanding of the current climate in our schools. Not only did it offer a look within each unique school campus, it was helpful to review our aggregate data for a wider view of our current system. Reading the results gifted us a new perspective.
This is especially important as our Catholic schools value parents as our partners. The results of the climate survey fostered an understanding of our parents' celebrations and concerns, which strengthened our commitment to this partnership. Additionally, it was impactful that the domains of the survey are easily aligned with the NESBECS, ensuring our commitment to excellence in Catholic Identity, Academics and Operational Vitality.
