A DAY IN THE LIFE
Student life at Catholic High begins with morning arrival, where students are greeted by a friendly and caring faculty and staff. Following the admission bell, the school day kicks off with school-wide prayer and announcements. Every student benefits from a solid foundation in the core subjects of math, science, social studies, and English Language Arts in addition to daily religion studies. Electives are available at every grade level to accommodate students with a variety of interests. These include physical education, STEM, music and fine arts, life skills, criminal justice, psychology, and technology offerings. The student body joins as one for weekly all-school Masses in the heart of campus. After-school activities include sports, clubs, and service organizations. At Catholic High, there is truly something for everyone.
