Abstract: There is no national head of the Catholic school system. Catholic schools are unified in that they have the same philosophy of education. This philosophy is expressed in the Encyclical of Pope Pius XI, "Christian Education of Youth”, as follows: It is necessary that all the teaching and the whole organization of the school, and its teachers, syllabus and textbooks in every branch, be regulated by the Christian spirit, under the direction and maternal supervision of the Church; so that Religion nay be in very truth the foundation and crown of the youth's entire training; and this in every grade of school, not only the elementary, but the intermediate and the higher institutions of learning as well. Catholic schools are under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of the diocese in which they are situated. In the year 1942-1943, the number of dioceses in the United States was one hundred thirteen, the number in the different states ranging from one to seven. The education in each diocese is supervised by a priest superintendent appointed by the Bishop. Some dioceses have, besides the superintendent of schools, the community supervisor, a Sister or Brother appointed by the superior of each order. These community supervisors, in addition to reporting to the head of their own religious orders, act as assistants to a diocesan superintendent of schools. The number of these supervisors in any diocese depends on the number of religious orders represented in that diocese.
