****Because of the dual track system, this is a 4 year program for high schoolers.  If more explanation is necessary, please contact a director, and we’d be happy to walk through the process for 9th-12th grade.

We look forward to providing outstanding Catholic classes and fellowship for our high schoolers!  Thank you for sharing your students with us.

In Christ through Mary,
