National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2015 is January 25 - 31. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with Masses, open house and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. 


Catholic schools in the Diocese of Orange were encouraged to create their own video for publication and promotion by the Orange Catholic Foundation (OCF) during Catholic Schools Week. The school with the most re-Tweets on OCF's Twitter and Likes on OCF's Facebook page combined will receive a $1,000 grant from the OCF. The school with the second most re-tweets and Likes combined will receive a $500 grant.
