On March 25, 2001, The Boston Globe reported that, "nationally, 13.6 percent of Catholic school students are non-Catholic." Many are not even Christian. Catholic schools are appealing for their safety, strong academics, a moral-based education, the discipline, and the small-school atmosphere. This makes it difficult for Catholic schools to maintain their Catholic identity.
