OptionC's Diocesan Management System is FREE to diocesan offices. This unique, all-in-one DMS provides diocesan administrators the necessary tools to efficiently track, assess and manage Catholic schools, RE/CCD staff, students and their families across an entire diocese. With "live" data at your fingertips, OptionC's DMS system includes the ability to quickly search for contact information, communicate directly with various audiences, pull required reporting efficiently, and track student trends.
Unlike other systems, OptionC is the only system in the country that aggregates all diocesan data into ONE system. OptionC is 100% specific to Catholic diocese. It is the only system in the U.S. that integrates the faith to help catechize every user when they log in.
OptionC's School Management System provides schools across the country with features that benefit Principals, Administrators, Teachers and Parents. The OptionC student management system is much more than a typical grade book system. We also offer customized diocesan report cards, more than 150 pre-generated and automated reports, including the official NCEA report, state reports and customized diocesan reports.
Our system is 100% cloud based and you and your families can access the system from home, school, office and mobile device. We offer secure logins and data is backed up daily. With our family site, families can log in anytime to see how their child is doing with assignments, grades, attendance and more. Parents can also check tuition status in real-time.
Unlike other systems, OptionC is 100% specific to Catholic schools with features such as online mass card requests, sacrament tracking, biblical references, staff prayer and intention discussion boards, links to the Vatican and Catholic news services, religious website templates, live streaming audio for Catholic radio and Catholic Saint of the Day.
OptionC can also work with you to create customized diocesan and state reports. Most importantly, by combining our School Management System with our Parent Alert System, you can access everything with just ONE LOG-IN.
OptionC's Parent Alert System is a flexible notification system that lets your audiences - parents, principals, and school staff - communicate quickly and reliably. Users can decide how they want to be reached, either by voice, text or email, or any combination. From weather-related closings and schedule changes, to fundraising event reminders and everything in between, the possibilities are endless with the Parent Alert System.
OptionC's Catholic Content module was built to help Catholic schools replace non-secular learning materials with those that integrate the Catholic faith. This subscription-based service helps Catholic schools and religious education programs deliver an enhanced, Catholic-based curriculum. With more than 1,000 high-quality and faith-based learning resources, Catholic Content is designed to catechize school and religious education staff, students and parents, so that they continue to grow in the Catholic faith.
There is no other single source for Catholic Content available to prek-8 schools in the U.S. Many Catholic schools continue to use secular or public school material without any reference to the Catholic faith. OptionC's library of content helps teach students to read, write and think while also learning about their faith. Catholic Content can be purchased as a diocesan-wide solution or by individual schools/RE programs. The Catholic Content module is fully-integrated in the OptionC School Management System making it easy for teachers to view the content in the same login as they create their lesson plans or add homework. Only through learning the faith are schools ultimately going to increase enrollment. Let our Catholic Content help!

OptionC has been a blessing to our school. The customer service is outstanding...no question is too small or too big. My teachers are excited to have an easy program to use for lesson planning, attendance, and grading. Our parents are thrilled to have access to their children's assignments and grades as well as their tuition accounts. Happy teachers and parents make for happy administration! We participated in a magazine drive with OptionC. It was very easy to do. We were encouraged by our school's profits from the drive and the students were excited by the incentives to participate. As principal, I highly recommend OptionC to other school administrators!St. Athanasius School, Archdiocese of Philadelphia
OptionC has enhanced St. Vivian Catholic School for the last four 4 years! We have been able to communicate more effectively with our families to help each of our students be more successful! Your daily note about the "Saint of the Day" helps us to better promote our Catholic Identity and better spread Jesus's "Good News"! Extra info on special "Holy" days also adds more info to share about our faith! Thanks!St. Vivian Catholic School, Archdiocese of Cincinnati
