Catholic schools are warning MPs to expect more phone calls and letters as they continue to fight the Turnbull government's funding plans.

The sector is upping its response to Education Minister Simon Birmingham's reforms, dubbed Gonski 2.0, arguing it will result in fee increases.

"Catholic education has a history of running grassroots campaigns and that will be the way this ongoing effort to preserve the 200-year history of Catholic education will proceed," National Catholic Education Commission acting executive director Danielle Cronin told AAP on Saturday.
