The Searchlight® Virtual School was created in an effort to harness the power of the electronic media to connect with teens, young adults, adults, catechists, and teachers who, for whatever reason, are unable to attend religious instruction, faith formation classes, or catechist training at their local parish or school within the Diocese of Palm Beach. (We also welcome catechists, teachers, youth, and anyone interested in online faith formation outside our diocese to participate. Please access our Diocesan Affiliates page.)
As outlined in the school’s policies, the Parish Catechetical Leader or PCL (i.e. Director of Religious Education, Coordinator of Youth Ministry, or School Principal) will be notified when students have completed courses and/or have received either a Certificate of Completion or Diocesan Certification in a Searchlight® Virtual School online training program.
