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.
On March 16, the Northwest Catholic Student Council hosted its bi-annual blood drive. This year's total between both drives was 75 pints, and on Friday, 23 first-time donors gave.
