NWC came together Monday morning to pay tribute to Dr. King. To start, President Christian Cashman spoke of King’s commitment to the “beloved community,” urging the audience to help realize King’s dream by making Northwest Catholic a “beloved community” and remembering all the great leader preached.
Northwest Catholic welcomes students of all faiths.
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 based on values. We cultivate servant leaders. And we welcome students of all faiths and at all stages of their journey.
Service is integral to a Northwest Catholic education.
Sophomores are required to complete a 25 hour service project, which often transitions to a commitment a student voluntarily makes throughout the rest of his or her time at Northwest Catholic. Aside from the required service hours, there are many opportunities generated, most often by Campus Ministry, and announced at Convocation, in class, and through the newsletter.
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 NWC, and this is one of the many reasons why families choose Northwest Catholic.
Northwest Catholic's Link Crew sat down with their freshmen this week for a "Cocoa and Cram." The seniors answered questions about the upcoming midterm exams, helping to dial down the worry, roll back the mystery, and motivate the freshmen to study.
