ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Catholic schools across the nation are celebrating their success this week.

This is the 36th annual Catholic Schools Week.

At Albany's St. Teresa's Catholic school faculty held a luncheon today to honor local leaders and city officials. This year's theme is "Catholic School's celebrate service"

Kids had fun too. They got to eat lunch in their classrooms. St.Teresa's principal says she's proud of the school that's been around 65 years.

"We are still here and we are still doing the same thing we've always done which is to educate the hearts and minds of our students and hopefully one day they will become the next leaders in our country," said Principal Mary Lou Gamache.

There are nearly 7500 catholic schools nationwide. Students have a 99% graduation rate. Feedback
