Northwest Catholic offers an outstanding, college preparatory, academic program rooted in the Catholic Tradition. Academic excellence remains the key component of Northwest Catholic’s mission. Students are supported by the fundamentals of the program and challenged by a broad array of Honors and Advanced Placement classes. Students receive a foundation in religion, history, math, science, English, languages and the arts, which allows them to learn to read more closely, think more carefully, and write more clearly.
As Northwest Catholic enters its second fifty years, the students are challenged to excel spiritually, academically, artistically, and physically. Both current students and alumni see Northwest Catholic as a place “where they truly belong.” Northwest Catholic has a long tradition in educating leaders for the State of Connecticut and the world. This tradition has been brought into the 21st Century with the addition of modern technology and up-to-date teaching methods.
Northwest Catholic has an outstanding faculty and staff who are both excellent educators and role models. Students are enriched by the passion, expertise, and commitment of these dedicated professionals, and work collaboratively with their teachers, coaches, and moderators to prepare for life and work in the modern world. By learning as they will be taught in college, Northwest Catholic students are not only prepared to gain acceptance into prestigious colleges and universities but also to thrive during their collegiate years.
Northwest Catholic’s seniors are well prepared to excel at the country’s most competitive colleges and universities. Our young women and young men are inducted into honor societies, receive National Merit recognition, and attain high scores on SAT, ACT, and AP exams. They are recognized for their academic excellence, their success in the fine and performing arts, and their achievements on the athletic fields. Most importantly, they graduate with a faith in God which gives meaning and direction to their lives.Sincerely,
