St. Louis Archdiocesan Catholic High School Online Application Process

Dear Parents ~

Catholic Secondary Education has a long heritage and strong tradition in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Our high schools are noted for their excellence in education.  Thousands of graduates of our Catholic secondary schools are activeCatholics in our parishes and have made significant contributions to the civic, business and professional community in St. Louis and across the nation.

We are proud of our high schools. Through our Catholic secondary schools we educate the whole student by providing quality religious, academic and co-curricularprograms. The mission of our schools is the teaching of the Catholic faith and preparation of young adults to be productive citizens in our Church and world communities.
As parents, you play an important role in the continuation of this wonderful tradition of Catholic secondary education. Your sons and daughters have outstanding high schools from which to choose.  There are archdiocesan, parish and private high schools for girls, boys and coeducational.  The high schools are all rich in their history and tradition.

When you choose one of our Catholic high schools, we pledge our full commitment and dedication to the total Catholic education of your students during their high school career.  The initial application process is online this year.

Lead. Learn. Proclaim.

Four educational leaders in Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of St. Louis will be honored this year with a Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award for dedication and commitment to excellence. 

The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) will present these awards at a special reception and dinner at the annual convention to be hosted here in St. Louis at America’s Center, April 18-20.

We are proud to recognize the following educators:

  • Kathleen Hertlein, Theology Teacher and Academic Dean at St. Francis Borgia Regional High School
  • The Saint Louis University High School Campus Ministry Team
  • Reverend Ralph A. Siefert, S.M ., President of Chaminade College Preparatory High School
  • Kathleen Stinehart, Teacher at Ursuline Academy

These men and women were chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations who have demonstrated a strong Catholic educational philosophy, as well as exceptional ability, dedication and results.

“It takes dedicated people in the schools, the dioceses, the parishes and the communities to carry out the mission of faith formation in Catholic schools. They are the living messengers of God’s purpose from generation to generation,” said Jim Pavlacka, NCEA Director of Leadership Development.

The staff of the Catholic Education Office has been planning for this event for almost two years, and we are happy to report that registration is strong! We are proud of our history, and excited to share it, along with our plans for the future.

“Doc, you look a little young…”

Ste. Genevieve du Bois Catholic School seventh graders put their marketing skills into “practice,” literally, in collaboration with Junior Achievement (JA) and Purina to create a mini-storefront Pet Adoption Center simulation booth at the recent JA BizTown.

Students ran their simulated business for a day discovering “real world” economics, business finance, entrepreneurship and philanthropy.

Visitors to the booth chose a pet profile on a simulated Petfinder website, which was matched to a microchipped stuffed dog or cat.

Student “veterinary technicians” walked visitors through the benefits of pet adoption, performed a “medical exam” on the “pet” and made food recommendations (Purina, of course!) based on the pet’s age and dietary needs.
