Catholic schools in Pinellas County

St. Petersburg Catholic High School’s Class of 2013 processes into St. John Vianney Church in St. Pete Beach for the school’s 55th commencement ceremony.

As in many communities, Catholic schools in Pinellas County make up the biggest local school system besides public schools. Twelve elementary schools, two high schools and one school for special-needs students operate in Pinellas under the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg.

In 2012, students from the diocese received more than $7 million in financial aid. About $3.9 million of that was from Florida Tax Credit Scholarships for students in low-income families.

The diocese has issued a special report that outlines the philosophy of its schools and offers details about curriculum, school activities and student performance. To get a copy, visit dosp.org, find the "Schools" tab on the menu bar and click on "Office of Schools & Centers." On the next page, click on the link to the special report near the bottom.

Many Catholic schools have started notifying the public about open houses for the 2014-15 school year. The Catholic schools in Pinellas are:
