A Private PreK - 12 College Preparatory Catholic School

Welcome to The Highlands School

 Dr. Michael Pennell
 Head of School

 


Our mission at The Highlands School is clear: to develop our students into Christian leaders who can make a meaningful difference in the world around them.

The Highlands School is a Pre-K3 through 12th grade Catholic college preparatory school.  Our enrollment is just under 350 students.  Our smaller school environment affords students a higher teacher to student ratio, more opportunities to participate in extracurricular and sports activities, and creates a marvelous 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.

The Highlands has a Formation Team of 8 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.
