Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions a parent can make for their children’s future, and with this new streamlined application and additional financial assistance and scholarships we will be able to offer more children a high-quality, life-changing Catholic education. Academic success starts in our early childhood programs and continues throughout the elementary and high school grades. We are proud that more than 98% of our high school seniors graduate and 99% of those graduates go on to college or post-secondary education.
