East Catholic exists to educate young men and women according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Building on Catholic tradition and teaching, we provide an integrated approach to learning in an authentically Catholic and yet ecumenically sensitive community.
Within this faith community, we strive to recognize God’s presence in the varied experiences of everyday high school life.
In our education of the whole person, we value academic excellence, personal growth, and social commitment.
We want to teach our students how to become life-long learners who think critically and creatively, act compassionately and justly, and serve others generously and courageously.
We assist students in becoming adults who love God, and therefore, respect themselves, others, the earth and the universe as part of God’s living creation.
The success of our educational endeavor depends on the belief, commitment, and participation of faculty, staff, administration, and students in collaboration with parents and the wider community.
