Catholic High School Acceptance:
Each year, over 95% of our graduating 8th graders attend the Catholic high school of their choice.
Parents are required to volunteer 40-hours a year. In addition, families are asked to participate in the Scrip program and earn $250 in profit per year. All volunteers working on campus or directly with the students must complete a Safe Environment Training and be fingerprinted.
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. Applications are available in the front office on the first day back from Christmas vacation.
