Catholic High School Acceptance:
Each year, over 95% of our graduating 8th graders are accepted into their first choice Catholic high school.
Families are required to volunteer 40 hours each school year. In addition, families are asked to participate in the Scrip fundraising program and commit to earning $250 in profit each year. All volunteers working on campus or directly with students must be fingerprinted and complete an online Safe Environment Training program.
At Holy Spirit School, we believe that student appearance should reflect appropriate Catholic school values. Our students wear a school uniform daily.
Families that need tuition assistance are encourage to apply annually for our tuition assistance program.
