The Association of Trustees of Catholic Schools (ATCS) was established in 2009 to address the concerns of Trustees/Patrons and to promote best operational practice in the exercise of Trusteeship/Patronage on behalf of the Catholic Church. Currently, there are sixty-four Trustee Bodies affiliated to the Association.
The vision and mission of ATCS is defined as follows:
“I have come that you may have life and have it to the full” (Jn 10:11)
The Association of Trustees of Catholic Schools is a locus for unity and inspiration, rooted in Gospel values, affirming and enabling Catholic School Trusts/Trustees in the provision of quality education. Through a process of consultation and accountability, the ATCS acts as a leadership body and collective voice for Catholic School Trusts in the exercise of their role. The management of the Association is vested in its Board. The Board is appointed for a three year term. The current Board (2014-2017) was appointed in October 2014.
