“When our principals and teachers see the other schools that are starting to implement this Catholic Liberal Arts Curriculum, I see it really building excitement in them to see that our diocese is leading the way.”

Bishop John's Statement on the Common Core

"After much consideration, the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Marquette will not adapt or adopt the Common Core State Standards which were developed for the public school system. That said, we acknowledge that there is a base of adequate secular material in the Common Core State Standards that faith-based schools could reference as part of their educational programming. While we respectfully understand that other private and Catholic schools may discern to adapt or adopt the standards for these and other reasons, we do not believe that such actions would benefit the mission, Catholic identity or academic excellence of our schools."
