dc.description.abstractThe changing demographics of elementary Catholic education in the United States has fundamentally shifted the educational landscape. In response to some of these changes, independent Catholic schools have arisen as a viable alternative to the traditional parochial school. This study describes how independent Catholic schools adapt to the changing educational climate while aiming to develop a set of evidence-based recommendations for establishing, maintaining, and communicating Catholic identity. Through a qualitative study utilizing semi-structured interviews, certain implications arose from the research: leadership is critical to all areas, providing a proper orientation to all community members is significant, the school’s identity must be articulated and communicated, all programs and planning must be aligned with the mission and facilitate a context for learning, and opportunities for community celebrations and traditions should be created.|Keywords: Catholic identity, independent, leadership, educationen_US
