  • The mission of The Highlands School is to provide the highest quality education and foster integrally formed Christian leaders. This mission is fulfilled as The Highlands School students graduate as strong Christian leaders, convinced of the truth, prepared and committed to establish and foster a society where Christian values are taught, embraced and put into practice.
  • This mission is pursued through the development of the whole person encompassing the commitment to teach, to educate, and to form.
  • We are the only school in North Texas to offer gender-specific education on a co-ed campus beginning in 4th grade. We are also the only school in Dallas to have received the Cardinal Newman National Honor Rolll School of Excellence award (2004-Present) for academic excellence and Catholic formation.
