The Catholic Church IS the Christian Church founded by Christ Himself with St. Peter being the first Pope. A Catholic school is the definition of the Christian school.


Catholic Answer

It sounds as if you are using the word "Christian" to mean protestant, which really isn't correct. However, to answer your question, a Catholic school traditionally was run by religious Sisters, Brothers, or Fathers. This is no longer true in many cases due to the vocation crisis in the past forty years. Also, children in a Catholic school would attend Mass on a fairly regular basis, and have regular visits to the Church, for instance during Lent they would pray the Stations of the Cross. Usually they go to confession as a class, that sort of thing.
