WE ARE INVESTED.

We are in.  We’re all in.  We are committed to MTC, to our supporting parishes, to Catholic Education, to our community and to your children.  We are intent in partnering with the Parish Pastors, MTC’s Principal and its Leadership Team to ensure a long and prosperous future for this school.  The concept of a Board of Limited Jurisdiction (BLJ, or “The Board”) is an evolution from the Advisory Boards of the past in Archdiocesan schools.  We are here to crystallize a strategy, then support its implementation and execution.  Plain and simple.  In terms of how we do that, it helps to understand what will make us successful and a value-add to MTC.
