Our community, through its programs and services, helps every student achieve academic success, develop into unique individuals and future leaders, and is given the opportunity to grow in their faith. By offering an outstanding college-preparatory academic program, an active campus ministry program which embraces the spirit of the Dominican tradition, along with competitive sports, a renowned performing arts program, and a wide-variety of extra-curricular activities, our students are well prepared for life at the college level and beyond. We urge you to come and experience firsthand life and learning at Albertus Magnus High School. Parents and students have an opportunity to meet our teachers and review curriculum, consider our extra-curricular activities and speak with Student and Parent Ambassadors at one of our Open Houses. Students may also schedule a falcon for a day visit and spend the day shadowing a freshman student attending five classes and enjoying lunch.
  • Our calendar contains information about upcoming admissions events as well as sporting and performing arts events, and we hope you will take advantage of these activities.
