Our mission is simple – to help parents transform their sons into good husbands, good fathers, and good leaders in their communities. Catholic High advances the best parts of the learning that happens at home in that sense. It is imperative that our students have the tools to thrive in their adult lives and we accomplish this with our unique culture based on life lessons alongside academic lessons.
Our curriculum strives to challenge boys academically while also teaching the truths of manhood – faith, integrity, and duty. We have a simple recipe for teaching boys here. At Catholic High, nothing is freely given except opportunity. Everything else is earned. Friendships are forged in the fires of challenge. Grades are earned through blood, sweat, and tears. And when a boy receives a diploma from Catholic High, it is not a certificate of attendance; it is a certificate of achievement.
Our legacy and longevity allows us to support a population of 700+ students. We have numerous academic, athletic & extracurricular opportunities for students to pursue their talents, explore new interests, and grow in all areas of life.
Boys experience a special kind of fraternity, often referred to by faculty, graduates, and students alike as the Catholic High brotherhood. What forms this brotherhood? From time immemorial, challenges have bonded men, and the rigorous academics and strict discipline of CHS are certainly enough for that; but all-school Masses, pep rallies with the skit cheerleaders, athletic events, intramurals, and the Catholic High traditions which the boys experience together serve to strengthen CHS boys’ brotherhood, rooted, as it is, in faith, laughter, competition, and common goals.
WHAT BROTHERHOOD MEANS TO ME:
Growing up with an older brother that went to Catholic High, I knew I wanted to be a part of what he always referred to as “The Brotherhood.” I love that I’m able to explore so many of my interests, from joining Broadcast Journalism and JROTC my freshman year to becoming president of the drama club as a junior. As I get ready for college in two short years, I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given at Catholic High that will help me stand out in the application process.
Our basic mission is to offer a Catholic education to our students. “Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model for its faculty and the inspiration of its students.” As an inclusive community, we embrace diverse experiences and perspectives, welcoming students and families from all faiths and backgrounds.
