Criminal Background & Virtus Training Sessions

Background Investigations & Virtus Training Sessions

(Archdiocesan Policy 2102)


A criminal background search is required by the Archdiocese of San Antonio for any individual that will work or volunteer with minors. All employees (including substitute teachers), prospective employees, and volunteers must be in compliance with the Archdiocesan policy on criminal background checks.  Any individual who has not been issued a "clearance" status may not begin to work or volunteer on our campus.
