Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In keeping with our ongoing initiative to elevate communications and marketing strategies around our schools, mission, and operations, the Department of Catholic Schools (DCS) is proud to announce the launch of its new website.

With the rapid advancement of technology and the increasing need for digital connectivity, we strove to create a vibrant and responsive digital experience that would successfully engage prospective families and more fully articulate our ministry.

Featuring a custom, state-of-the-art homepage, dynamic user interface, interactive school finder, three new videos, and all-new content, the website was designed to create a richer visitor experience while demonstrating the value and beauty of the Catholic schools community in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

And, while providing facts and information was key, we also wanted to foster an opportunity for visitors to make a personal connection with our department, schools, faculty, students, mission, and faith. Moreover, the site will serve as an interactive information and communication platform for our principals and school stakeholders.

In alignment with our commitment to engage and accommodate a diverse audience, website visitors can view the website in five languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean.

Additional highlights include:

  1. Responsive and intuitive design that moves fluidly on multiple devices
  2. News page with ongoing and timely update
  3. Expanded articulation of DCS’ four innovative school networks
  4. Careers page featuring new Catholic schools Careers video
  5. Faith page featuring Archbishop Jose Gomez in new Faith video
  6. Catholic School Difference page featuring new Mission video
  7. Custom, easy-to-use school finder map linking to individual school websites

The website will continue to evolve and expand in the coming months with added features and platforms, including internal portals for DCS staff and school principals.

We invite you to explore the new website!

Yours in Christ,

Paul Escala

Senior Director & Superintendent of Schools
