The Congregation of Christian Brothers believes that our greatest national resources are the minds and hearts of our children. They believe that the quality of the education provided to children has a direct and profound effect upon the quality of life we all will share in the next century. The greatest investment that we can make, as a society, for our children, is to provide them with a strong, value-centered education. We must create the structures that will enable these young people to grow into healthy citizens who can contribute positively to our community. The Congregation of Christian Brothers has successfully provided this education for almost two hundred years in 250 schools and colleges throughout the world.
