Superintendent of Catholic Education, Kurt Nelson, Ph.D., shared as many reasons as ten minutes would allow with Martin Kilcoyne (KTRS) about why students and families should choose a Catholic high school.
Just a few...
Catholic secondary schools offer choice with 26 schools from which to choose--single-sex, coed, Archdiocesan, private, in 11 counties of Missouri--there IS a Catholic school to suit every student's needs and interests!
ACT scores in Catholic secondary schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis are in the 99th percentile among all school systems in Missouri.
Scholarships are more available than ever--this year, $9 million has been awarded.
Catholic identity, Christian service and faith formation across the curriculum cannot be provided in public schools.
Listen to Dr. Nelson for more reasons why a Catholic education is an investment in your child's future!

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Model of Justice Award is an annual award for a noble cause. This award is presented to high school students who have demonstrated, through their attitude and their work, a commitment to serving humanity in the broader community. These students have made justice a central part of their lives, and have committed themselves “to the noble struggle for equal rights.”
