Catholic Schools Council President
Jeff Martinez

The mission of the Council is to promote a system of Catholic schools to bring forth Christian virtues by transmitting and integrating Gospel teachings in an educative process which, within an excellent program of academics, directs the students toward a conscious choice of living a responsible Catholic life.
