|At the start of each new school year, Bishop Walkowiak and Aquinas College President Dr. Kevin Quinn exchange letters celebrating the gift of Catholic education in the Diocese of Grand Rapids. Read this year’s letters below. (If the embedded letters do not display, you can click the linked titles instead.)|
Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are an alliance of 31 vibrant learning communities (26 elementary and five high schools) serving more than 6,340 preschool through 12th grade students throughout West Michigan. Our schools inspire young people to grow in Catholic faith and grace, achieve more in school and life, develop creativity and character, and feel welcomed and cherished for their unique gifts. We partner with parents to awaken the whole child to a world of light and life — that grows better and brighter when children reach their potential.
