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:

  5. Colors and culture in Cuba overwhelm first-time visitor

    Travel

    I landed in Havana with many questions about what we would witness in our brief visit. There was so much rich history and culture I wanted to experience, but the stories I had heard from Cuban refugees rang in my brain. After the death of Fidel Castro, some Cuban immigrants danced in the streets of Tampa and told …

    Havana is a photographer's dream. Bright colors abound, from the walls to the classic cars to the streets filled with tourists, musicians and locals. All of these elements are a part of photographs that were so rare for Americans to capture until very recently. I loved photographing this scene in front of this perfect yellow wall.
