"When I walk in a classroom as a Catholic teacher, when I see my students, I have to know that each one of them is a child of God, created by God, for God, and that they are destined to go home to God. If you do not believe that, you're in the wrong school. I believe there's a God and that we're all going home. This whole journey on this earth is a journey home to God. That's the whole basis of our educational system. We are here to nourish that child on the journey home." Sr. Clare Fitzgerald, SND
Thank you for your interest in teaching or administration at one of the 40 elementary and secondary schools in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence. We serve students in grades pre-kindergarten to 12.
The Roman Catholic schools in the Diocese of Providence are equal opportunity employers that seek highly professional teachers and administrators dedicated to the 2,000 year mission of Catholic education. With a personal passion for learning, our teachers and administrators impact the lives of thousands of children and young men and women. They are inspired by a love of truth, the desire to work in a collaborative team environment and to belong to a system of schools that consistently sets the bar for the highest student expectations in the region.
Responding to a vocation as well as a professional opportunity, teachers and administrators are ministers faithfully carrying out the mission Christ entrusted to his Church: to spread the Gospel, to serve our sisters and brothers, and to build up the body of Christ which is the Church. Therefore, all who serve in Catholic education witness by their public behavior, actions, and words a life consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
