Student-led organizations such as student government, fine arts programs, athletics and mission trips help provide an education that extends beyond the classroom. Additional enrichment programs include foreign languages and advanced coursework options. Through these activities, students prepare for success by developing social, communication, and leadership skills.

Parent Partnerships

We know it takes a village to raise a child. Parental involvement is a valued component of Catholic education. We appreciate all levels of involvement, which are crucial to strengthening our community. We partner with parents to raise respectful, honest, ethical children, and we strive to instill these virtues.

Test Scores and Graduation

According to the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA), 99% of Catholic school students score higher than public school students on standardized testing, and 99% of Catholic school students graduate. Of those, 86% go on to attend a four-year college! 

Community Service

We encourage our students to be civically engaged. Because of this, we teach about them about our responsibility to social justice and the importance of helping those in need. From collecting food for the homeless to cleaning up our beaches, students work both individually and as a team to serve their community and change the world.
