Saint Monica Catholic High School is a coeducational, parish high school that provides a college preparatory curriculum for students of diverse abilities, cultures, and faiths.
As a Catholic high school guided by gospel values, we affirm and respect the dignity of each member of our school community.
We are a faith-filled community that values Christian service, as well as academic achievement.
Our mission is to graduate students who demonstrate strength of character, intellectual integrity, and the love of God and others.
Recognizing parents as the primary educators, we provide a faith-based education in collaboration with parents, faculty, and the parish community.
We achieve this through the synthesis of the spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional, social, and physical development of our students.
