Catholic schools with boarding facilitate a boy's or girl'scomplete immersion in the Roman Catholic faith. Being in an environment where everyone around them practices the Roman Catholic faith strengthens their faith immensely. Within the halls of boarding schools, children grow in faith an deepen their commitment to the Catholic church and its ideals.

Many faith-based schools, such as Northmount School, a Catholic school in Toronto, Ontario, have substantial portions of the student body that don't adhere to that particular faith. "We talk about how one leads a good life. That's applicable to everyone," says the director of admissions at Northmount. "We are not in the business of converting anyone. Our position is that we want our students to be the best adherents to whatever religion they observe."

While schools provide an education conducted through the lens of basic Christian values, students come from a wide range of traditions and backgrounds. Wha't faith-based schools offer is an enhanced curriculum, one that provides an explicit attention to values, ethics, character, and the students' spiritual life. 

Catholic schools offer a full curriculum while also providing a strong foundation in the values, character, and the traditions of Catholicism. In addition to the core curriculum, they typically also have required religion courses.
