Mission Statement

Catholic High helps parents transform their sons into strong husbands, fathers and leaders in their communities. Although our spiritual foundation is still the rock of our mission, we have adapted to the needs of boys today to offer high quality education at affordable rates with the latest in state-of-the-art technology.

Environment & Curriculum

Catholic High has gained a unique reputation for discipline, high academic expectations, spiritual growth and a strong sense of brotherhood and tradition.

Innovative & Creative Teaching Methods

Catholic High continues to blend long-standing traditions with the new, including their new Robotics and Intro to Aeronautics classes.

Scholarship or Financing Options

We have a strong commitment to serving the needs of young men regardless of their family’s financial situation. Inability to pay full tuition should not deter a boy from applying for admission.

Campus & Facilities

Over the years, Catholic High has upgraded its classrooms and facilities, including a new annex housing additional learning spaces and athletic training facilities. We also have a library, two gyms, two labs, an art studio, an auditorium and a music room.

Extracurricular Activities

We have numerous academic, athletic and extracurricular opportunities for students to pursue their talents, explore new interests and grow in all areas of life.

Exciting Projects

We are now offering more advanced placement offerings along with our honors classes. The Science Department has a PCR machine which will be used to analyze DNA, detect genetically modified food and clone a molecule of DNA.

College Attendance

Each year, more than 95% of Catholic High graduates attend colleges, universities and military academies across the United States, with 90% of our students receiving scholarships to attend the college of their choice.
