Our mission is to provide a Catholic educational center, distinguished by its disciplined, values-based approach to the education and formation of young men and women into a Christian community of principled thinkers.
Columbus develops the mind, body and spirit through a balance of quality curricular, extracurricular, and community service activities within a Christ-centered environment.
A Catholic education at Columbus High School fosters the values of human dignity, responsibility, importance of family, informed citizenship and moral decision making.
Columbus students are caring, concerned and involved persons who operate from a strong value foundation rooted in faith and nurtured by family.
They are disciplined, enthusiastic, willing to serve and represent diverse cultures and economic backgrounds.
The Columbus student acquires a knowledge of Catholic vision and values and a responsibility to self, family, community and society.
The student's knowledge includes the skills of effective communication, decision making, problem-solving and conflict resolution to be used in career, leisure, service and faith.
