Do not be afraid!

"Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch."

These words, spoken by Pope John Paul II, perfectly express a Catholic school's deepest aspirations for its students. Be it the rigor of the classroom, the careful attentiveness required by the arts, or the challenge of athletic competition, we want our students to strive to be excellent in all their endeavors, so that with the confidence that comes through achievement, they may indeed be willing to risk lives of great depth and commitment of service to their Church and community.

The lens through which all our activity is focused is our Catholic faith. Through study of Scripture and Doctrine, students discover the ancient and universal truths that bring order and synthesis to their lives. Through opportunities for service, students are inspired to love God through others. Through prayer, liturgy and worship, they are invited into a deeper relationship with the Lord.

Catholic schools exist to immerse students in a community that challenges the mind, strengthens the body, lifts the spirit and nourishes the soul.

Come "out into the deep" and join us!
