We are a Catholic college-preparatory high school community for young men. We promote the academic, spiritual, social and physical development of our students. We do this in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales who challenges us to "Be who we are and be that well."
Congratulations to all of the students who achieved outstanding academic success for the Third Quarter of the 2012-13 school year and were placed on the Honor Roll. The lists for each class are available here.
