Outside of the classroom, students participate in athletics, student activities, campus ministry, and service - empowering students to shape their own character within a safe and supportive educational environment. Our focus on a holistic student experience ensures that we uphold the Jesuit principle of Cura Personalis, the education of the whole person, creating a community of well-rounded leaders.
As a Jesuit high school, we prepare holistic leaders according to the Grad at Grad characteristics: Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving, Committed to Justice, and Work Experienced.
