About The Highlands School

The Highlands School is a Pre-K3 through 12th grade Catholic college preparatory school. Our smaller school environment affords students a higher teacher to student ratio, more opportunities to participate in extracurricular and sports activities, and creates a wonderful family atmosphere that fosters the flourishing of the individual.

Our school is best known for its strong academics and the full development of all aspects of the person.  This is fruit of our four-tiered Integral Formation® methodology which focuses on the intellectual, spiritual, character, and apostolic development of each student. 

Highlighting this is the recognition we have received being named to the National Catholic High School Honor Roll every year since 2004, Cardinal Newman Society and #1 Co-ed Private Catholic School in DFW. 

Recognizing the parent as the primary educator of the child, our mission embraces the entire family. We provide a safe, moral, and spiritual environment which leads to positive peer groups and joyful, caring, confident students.

The Highlands has a full time Leadership Formation Team of religious men and women whose focus is the personalized character and spiritual development of each student.  We have a clear and enthusiastic Catholic identity, yet lived in a way that families from other faiths feel at home.  We incorporate the truth about who God is and how we should relate to Him and to each other into the daily lived experience at school.

With the intellectual, spiritual, character, and apostolic formation, and building on the foundations laid at home, The Highlands School students are given what is necessary to be strong leaders who value virtue and service to others, being true lights in our world.
