Our Catholic Identity
Catholic Virtual is proud to serve our Catholic schools and their students around the world.
Catholic Virtual is a team of passionate educators rooted in the Catholic faith. We all believe in the teachings, values, and traditions passed along to us by our parents, teachers, and clergymen. We understand the meaning behind and believe in Pope Francis’s words, “Educating is an act of love; it is like giving life.” It’s from our beliefs and values that Catholic Virtual was created.
Catholic Virtual is more than a school; we are a community of Catholic schools, educators, and families around the world working to provide students and families with a high-quality educational experience. As a Catholic organization, we want to ensure the ideals of a Catholic education continue. We’re doing this by providing new opportunities and solutions for 21st-century learning that allow Catholic schools and families to deliver a Catholic education to students that adapts to our ever-changing world and needs.
- We are the only fully-accredited provider of a full suite of K-12 online religious education courses aligned to the standards of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
- Teachers infuse courses with Catholic content and values.
- All teachers have access to approved faith formation training for teaching in Catholic schools.
- We offer a variety of theology courses for students, such as The Mission of Jesus Christ and The Revelation of Jesus Christ in Sacred Scripture.
As our world grows more connected than ever, the need to adopt an online Catholic school curriculum is top of mind. Catholic Virtual advocates for our Catholic school partners around the globe. We are here to help you develop a distinguished online Catholic program.
Here's What Others Have to Say
“I have taught a number of religious classes and Catholic Virtual’s courses are some of the best I’ve worked with. The questions are thought-provoking and ask you to dig deeper. They are excellent… for all ages.”
-Carol Fletcher, Religious Studies Teacher
“I like the high school experience at St. Therese Catholic School because it allows a one-on-one setting. The blended learning has been a positive experience for me and allows me to work at my own pace.”
-Katelyn Groves, Denver
“We’ve gained so much from your class and are grateful that you were all there for us to give us a great learning experience during this pandemic.”
-Tony Guerrero, Parent
U.S.C.C.B. STANDARDS: “…It is important to note, however, that not all catechetical texts and materials are subject to a conformity review. The fact that a given item does not appear on the Subcommittee’s “Conformity List” does not necessarily mean that it has been reviewed and found to be deficient, or that the publisher has failed to submit it. A conformity review is not applicable to materials that fall into one of the following categories: 1) Catechetical materials that provide doctrinal content in teacher or catechist manuals rather than in student materials. The Subcommittee will undertake a conformity review of teacher or catechist manuals only when they complement student materials that already have a declaration of conformity or are under review for conformity. 2) Catechetical materials that are published in the form of regularly updated leaflets or periodicals with frequently changing content. These include materials related to the Church’s liturgical year. 3) Individual monographs which focus specifically on individual topics, teachings or devotions, including biblical commentaries and college level student texts. 4) Materials that include biological and physiological content along with catechetical content. 5) Digital media, including websites and DVD’s. Even if these materials are not eligible for a conformity review by the Subcommittee, individual bishops and their diocesan offices typically monitor and approve such catechetical materials for use in schools and parish catechetical programs.”
