We are delighted to have this opportunity to share with you information about our school community. The school is directed by the Legionaries of Christ, an international congregation of priests. The Highlands School is part of a network of more than 195 Legionary schools and Universities worldwide. The mission of The Highlands is to form young men and women who will be leaders capable of carrying the Gospel into all fields of society. The hallmark of all Legionary schools is formation of the whole person. This involves intellectual formation (solid, challenging academics), human formation (good character habits, developing all one's talents), spiritual formation (developing a strong friendship with Christ, formation of the conscience, a deep sacramental life), and apostolic formation (using one's God-given talents to serve him by serving our brothers and sisters).
Another aspect of Legionary pedagogy is personalized attention. Academic coordinators and deans of students assist each student with academic and human formation. We are blessed to have two Legionary priests who devote themselves full time to the spiritual and sacramental lives of our students. In addition, regular one-to-one spiritual guidance is available for students in middle and upper grades.
Integral formation, personal attention, leadership training, an extensive sports program, community service, and opportunities for foreign travel: these elements come together to provide our students with a school experience which will prepare them well for the future.
No written words can capture the spirit of the school. We hope you will come and take a tour, to see and experience The Highlands spirit. Check our Open House dates or call for an appointment. We look forward to meeting your family.
