The Schools Office serves the 17 elementary and 3 high schools in the Diocese of Gary. There are 11 elementary schools and 2 high schools in Lake County; 3 elementary schools in Porter County; and 3 elementary schools and 1 high school in LaPorte County. All the schools are accredited by the state of Indiana.
The Catholic Schools of the Diocese are an essential part of the total educational mission of the Church of Gary. Because all but three schools are parish based, much authority and responsibility for the implementation of the mission of the Catholic school lies with local pastor/principal leadership. The Catholic Schools Office provides services, resources, and facilitates for the Catholic school communities.
