How Are We Different From Other Schools?
As Catholics we are called to serve God and help those in need. Community Service plays an important part in our daily lives at school and at home. As a school community, we participate in many local and national service programs to help others who suffer from hardship, natural disasters, and poverty.

We also work throughout our local community to help feed the hungry, provide supplies to the homeless, school supplies to children in need, and show our support our local police, firefighters, and emergency personnel. We know that you will recognize our students in or out of uniform as they strive to demonstrate a positive, christian example in all that they do.
