The Economic Impact of Catholic Schools
Catholic schools provide value to students and their local community. While the many benefits of a Catholic school education are readily apparent to those who are products of Catholic schools, the economic value of a Catholic education to the wider community is less understood.
The Archdiocese commissioned an economic impact study to quantify the value of Catholic schools. Noted economist and President of Sage Policy Group, Anirban Basu, conducted an economic analysis to determine the benefits delivered to Catholic school graduates and the state and local community by Catholic schools. The report examined factors such as the impact of Catholic schools as operating entities on the local economy, the impact of Catholic schools on work-life earnings, and the impact of schools in terms of stabilizing populations in older communities.
