NCEA Parent News

NCEA has developed a series of flyers for families to assist schools with marketing and enrollment management, and also to give families some national perspective on Catholic schools. Each month, member schools will receive an electronic flyer that they may choose to use in their communications with families.


 The objectives of this series are: 

  • To educate families on the benefits of a Catholic school education; 
  • To prepare families to build enrollment by witnessing to other families; 
  • To inform and educate families about parental choice.  

Please consider distributing these flyers as part of your monthly communication strategy with families.  The flyers may be printed or posted with any of your electronic communications.

These flyers have become a regular feature included in the NCEA Talk e-Newsletter, distributed by email the second Thursday of each month. Also, as of the 2017-18 school year, NCEA has been publishing Parent News in Spanish.
