Why St. Louis Catholic?

At St. Louis, our Catholic faith is the cornerstone of what we do. It fuels the community of love and respect that allows every student to thrive in his or her own way. Why choose St. Louis Catholic High School?

There’s something for everyone. About 80% of St. Louis students participate in athletics. Nearly 100% participate in at least one team, club or other activity. And every student is part of our House System, which creates a “community within a community” that binds members together for years to come. 

St. Louis academics are second-to-none. Over the last five years, St. Louis graduates have been offered billions in scholarships, earned an average 24.2 on the ACT and collectively completed several credit hours before finishing high school. These accomplishments are due in part to some of the outstanding academic programs available at St. Louis Catholic High School, including:

  • Our dual enrollment program includes 14 collegiate courses in eight subjects to jump-start your student’s postsecondary education beginning in the tenth grade. 
  • Our Advanced Placement program features 12 courses in a variety of subjects. 
  • St. Louis offers a number of non-traditional courses that prepare students for college, careers and life, including carpentry, media arts, computer architecture, family and consumer sciences, photography and more.
  • Religion is not only part of the curriculum at St. Louis, it is woven into our everyday experiences, with schoolwide prayer every morning, prayer before individual classes, weekly masses and liturgical celebrations, such as recognizing key feast days and solemnities. 

St. Louis is for every Saint. No matter what a student needs, St. Louis strives to meet them where they are. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Our smaller classes and tight-knit community provide an ideal environment for everyone to thrive.
