What is Steps for Students?
Steps for Students is an annual event benefiting the 59 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston- Houston. This exciting day of family fun includes a 5k USA Track and Field Association sanctioned race and post race party. The goal of Steps for Students is to unite the greater Houston community to raise awareness of the benefit of a Catholic education and provide much needed resources for our Catholic schools. Over 12,000 people come together each year to raise in excess of $1 million to meet these needs.
What does Steps for Students support?
Registrants have the opportunity to join a school team, designate their registration fee, less a $3 race entry-processing fee, to that school and solicit donations. Sponsorships for the race and any undesignated registration fees or pledges support the Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program.
The Archdiocesan Tuition Assistance Program is a commitment that the Archdiocese makes to keep Catholic schools accessible, available and affordable to all families. This commitment is the hallmark of our faith and service in regards to the educational mission of the Church. With 59 schools, serving over 19,000 students, the network of Catholic Schools is the largest private school system in the state of Texas.
