Spiritually, our students have religion classes daily, visit our Eucharistic Adoration Chapel weekly, and attend liturgies twice a month. All students complete ten service hours each year with numerous service opportunities available throughout the school year and the summer. Students are required to attend one retreat each year.
Academically, we offer academic courses for excellent, above average and average students. We offer honors classes starting freshman year, and Advanced Placement Courses for college credit starting sophomore year. This past year, 88% of our students who took the Advanced Placement exams earned a score of 3, 4 or 5 giving them college credit, far above the national average of 61%. In addition, we have two instructional support specialists who assist students with mild to moderate learning disabilities and/or ADHD.
Athletically, we offer 52 teams in 24 sports, and we have enjoyed athletic success on many levels. Over our history, we have earned 95 Catholic League championships and 36 state championships.
