ORADELL, NJ--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - Huntington Learning Center is proud to support Catholic Schools Week 2012 (Jan. 29 through Feb. 5), a celebration of Catholic schools in America as an important part of U.S. education due to their traditionally high academic standards and graduation rates. The year 2012 marks the 39th year of Catholic Schools Week, which became an annual event in 1974.

"America's youth are shaped by their education, and Huntington is pleased to join the Catholic schools in the state in giving elementary and secondary students the best education possible," says Eileen Huntington, co-founder of Huntington Learning Center. "We applaud all schools that uphold high educational standards and integrate values-based teaching into their curricula."

The 2012 theme of Catholic Schools Week is "Catholic Schools: Faith, Academics, Service," which highlights the three distinctions of Catholic schools. "Huntington Learning Center is a part of many communities across our nation, and we recognize that Catholic schools play an important role in our educational system," says Huntington. "We're proud to partner with Catholic and other schools of excellence to help students reach their potential and give them the foundation to become good citizens."

Huntington supports a variety of national events focused on education, including Read Across America, Math Awareness Month and American Education Week.
