  • Students are encouraged to participate in any or all of the activies that interest them, with a continued emphasis on their academics.

  • The Campus Ministry Program is committed to providing a Chrisitian vision of life that respects and appreciates cultural and individual differences. A four-year theology curriculum sets the tone for liturgical experiences that nourish each student's spiritual formation and includes dynamic Christian service opportunities, school and class masses, and global awareness projects to address the needs in our community and world. We celebrate the gospel message and our Catholic identity as paths to integrity, goodness and personal holiness.

School Reviews

Although it is not as large as some as the other catholic school, it has a great community that is family oriented and has a deep foundation in Christ. When I was there all the faculty and staff were very welcoming and made sure that I was integrated into the community! Wouldn't choose another school!
