Nat'l Standards

and Benchmarks


The National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools describes how the most mission-driven, program effective, well managed, and responsibly governed Catholic schools operate. They are school effectiveness standards rather than curriculum content standards, although they support curriculum development consistent with national standards and the Common Core State Standards.
