What is Steps for Students?
Steps for Students is an annual archdiocesan-wide event where all school and parish communities come together as one to support Catholic education. The goal of Steps for Students is to raise awareness of the importance of a Catholic education and provide much needed resources for our Catholic Schools. This day of family fun includes a sunrise mass at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, a 5k USA Track and Field Association sanctioned race and Post Race Party.
What does Steps for Students support?
Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Register to join a school team or the Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program. By joining a team you designate your registration fee (minus $3 race processing fee) to that school and you can solicit pledges for that school. Event sponsors support the Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program.
The Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program is a commitment that the Archdiocese makes to keep Catholic schools accessible, available and affordable to all families. This commitment is the hallmark of our faith and service in regards to the educational mission of the Church. With 59 schools, serving over 19,000 students, the network of Catholic Schools is the largest private school system in the state of Texas.
