The Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation is proud to support the National Catholic
Educational Association in their initiatives to educate students from all walks
of life and beliefs in the Washington, D.C. region.
NCEA is the largest private professional education organization in the world and
is a voluntary association of educators and institutions. The NCEA represents
approximately 200,000 educators serving 7.6 million students in Catholic
elementary and secondary schools located across our Nation.
The National Catholic Educational Association has a rich tradition of educating
students, but there are many dimensions to this organization. It provides a
viable education choice for inner-city students that seek a safe and qualified
place to learn. It serves communities by operating institutions of higher
learning, parish religious education programs, and adult education programs
where other independent programs cannot. The NCEA serves as a beacon of hope to
those that want more, but struggle to achieve it.
