- We are a Catholic based co-ed school whose goal is the formation of the whole person - mind, body, and soul - to help transform the world. We seek to train the pupil's memory, understanding, and will, so that the pupil can speak, write, and act well in life, for the greater glory of God. This is accomplished through self-activity, mastery of progressively more difficult material, formation of the will through conscientious application of study habits, and an emphasis throughout on developing the ability to learn, to think, and to communicate.
- We offer PreK through 12th grade in multi-level classrooms.
- We do not use Common Core and allow no bullying in our school. St. Scholastica specializes in bringing students up to grade level. Many students who come to our school were formerly in public or home school.

St. Scholastica HSC Academy has been a turning point in my life. It is the hinge that made my life what it is now. I wouldn`t trade my six years at St. Scholastica`s for anything. It has given me the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that I can use for the rest of the life.

One of the best things about St. Scholastica Academy is the friends that I made there. Even though I only went to school there for two years, I have lifelong friends that I`m still in contact with thirteen years later.
