About School Governance 

Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Bridgeport reflect the mission of the Catholic Church. As a ministry of the Diocese of Bridgeport, our Catholic schools are overseen by Kathleen Casey, interim Superintendent of Schools. Further, the Schools and the Office of the Superintendent of Schools have access to the experience and expertise of dedicated teams of professionals who advise our leadership through their roles on Diocesan Schools Boards and School Advisory Boards. Together, we advance the mission of Catholic education in the Diocese of Bridgeport.
