Our Mission

There is a place in Catholic schools for all children.

The Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Fall River endeavor to offer a quality value-oriented Catholic education to the children of southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and the Islands, without regard to race, creed, nationality or gender.

The goal of FACE is to ensure that no child is denied the opportunity of attending one of our schools due to financial hardship. For the 2018-19 academic year, FACE provided “needs-based” scholarship to about 925 children, totaling more than $1.3 million.  Since 2015, FACE has awarded over $4 million in scholarships to students across the Diocese and it is our mission to help as many families and children as we can.
