The Highlands School
5.00 (1 review)
- The mission of The Highlands School is the formation of Christian leaders who will transform society. In our gender separate environments on a co-ed campus, we follow the Integral Formation educational philosophy of the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi, which strives to develop the spiritual, intellectual, human, and apostolic dimensions of the whole person. Integral Formation is a comprehensive method and practice of teaching for developing authentic Catholic leaders in schools worldwide.
- Based on the Christian view of the person, it focuses on the complete development of all dimensions of the person: intellectual, human, spiritual, and apostolic.
- We challenge our students to identify and use their gifts in service to others. Recognizing the parent as the primary educator of the child, our mission embraces the entire family. We provide a safe, moral, and spiritual environment which leads to positive peer groups and joyful, caring, confident students. It is summed up in the motto of our mission: To Teach, To Educate, To Form.
- To Teach: informing the mind, transmitting knowledge To Educate: cultivating the heart to love authentic values and a sense of what is good, just, and beautiful To Form: forging the will and shaping character in virtue as a basis for integrity.

- The Highlands School is a Pre-K3 through 12th grade Catholic college preparatory school offering gender specific education on a co-ed campus (4-12th grade). Our smaller school environment affords students a higher teacher to student ratio, more opportunities to participate in extracurricular and sports activities, and creates a marvelous family atmosphere that fosters the flourishing of the individual.
- Our school is best known for its strong academics and the full development of all aspects of the person. This is fruit of our four-tiered Integral Formation methodology which focuses on the intellectual, spiritual, character, and apostolic development of each student. Highlighting this is the recognition we have received being named to the National Catholic High School Honor Roll every year since 2004.
- We believe that the spiritual life and character development are essential for the development of children. The Highlands has a staff of 10 full time religious men and women whose focus is the personalized character and spiritual development of each student. We have a clear and enthusiastic Catholic identity, yet lived in a way that families from other faiths feel at home. We incorporate the truth about who God is and how we should relate to Him and to each other into the daily lived experience at school.
- With this academic, character, spiritual and apostolic formation, and building on the foundations laid at home, Highlands School students are given what is necessary to be strong leaders who value virtue and service to others, being true lights in our world.
- At the Highlands, you can see the enthusiasm we have for our students. I encourage you to visit our campus and experience for yourself the passion of our people and excellence in education we provide. .
