Cataldo has been a great place for our boys to grow. Solid, foundational education provided by enthusiastic teachers, who adapt well to changing circumstances (like virtual learning, and mask mandates). Dedicated administrative team with vision, not only for dealing with upcoming challenges (like educational repercussions of a global pandemic), but for creating a school any parent would be proud to send their kids to. We are privileged to be at Cataldo.
– Parents of Current Preschooler and Second Grader
We made the switch to Cataldo a year after moving to Spokane, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with the potential challenges of distance learning, classroom rearrangements, physical distancing, and a long list of things that made our first year anything but typical, Cataldo has proven to be an exceptional choice for our family. There is a sincere commitment to strong family communication, excellence in academics, and the development of our children as unique individuals. Our girls are thriving socially and academically, and for that we are incredibly grateful. We have felt so welcomed by this community and look forward to many more years with our Cataldo family.
– Parents of Current Kindergartener and Fourth Grader
We moved our son to Cataldo in 7th grade. We felt that the small and special Cataldo community would be a much better fit for junior high than a large public middle school. And what a great fit it was! The teachers and administrators are incredibly engaged with the kids – and the parents – and create a nurturing, faith-based learning environment in a safe space, while still encouraging academic excellence. There truly isn’t another environment like the “Cataldo community.” Our daughter has now joined and is thriving as well, both academically and emotionally. We can’t recommend Cataldo enough!

Seven of my siblings and I graduated from Cataldo, so when we moved back to Spokane after 19 years away, where else would we enroll our children? Despite four wonderful years at Cataldo, we were still tempted by the solid offerings of the Spokane Public Schools, and so we moved our children away for two years. We simply could not replicate the community, the faith-based environment, and the unique offerings of Cataldo. Our children loved it here – it is a very special place!
