The Role of Faith at our Catholic High School

No matter your religion, if you believe in education rooted in faith and service, you will discover you belong at NWC. As James Joyce wrote, "Catholic means 'Here comes everybody.'" At NWC we provide a unique educational experience steeped in tradition and rooted in Christian values. We cultivate servant leaders, and we welcome students of all faiths and at all stages of their journey.

Service is Integral to a Christian Education

At Northwest Catholic, all sophomores are required to complete a 25 hour service project, which often turns into a commitment to a service organization that a student voluntarily makes throughout the rest of his or her time at Northwest Catholic. Aside from the required service hours, there are many volunteer opportunities for students often organized by Campus Ministry and announced at Convocation, in class, and through the newsletter. 

In addition, each class organizes service projects such as the Freshman Toy Drive and Sophomore Turkey Drive. Sports teams engage in projects like volunteering for Special Olympics or handing out waters at fundraising runs. Seniors can apply for the elective "A Chance to Serve" and spend five days of intense service in the Hartford area. Opportunities to serve abound at our school, and this is one of the many reasons why families choose Northwest Catholic.
