National Catholic Educational Association
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.
