Academics and College Preparation


Welcome to Northwest Catholic High School!

We offer an outstanding college preparatory curriculum rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition of faith in dialogue with reason. Offering a large array of advanced courses in both the humanities and STEM, we prepare our students to be well-rounded individuals ready for the challenges of college study.

The core of the course of study at Northwest Catholic includes Religion, English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Modern and Classical Languages, and Fine Arts. We also incorporate leadership development and Christian service into the curriculum through our LEADS program and classes like Christ in Society, ACTS, and the Honors Institute for Leadership in Life. It is our goal to prepare our students to be leaders of high moral character, guided by their faith, prepared to serve God and others.

The faculty and staff at Northwest Catholic are lifetime learners who have made a commitment to excellence, guiding our students to the knowledge and skills they need to be successful at the next level. Through the use of differentiated teaching methods, technology, and personal experience, our teachers engage and challenge students to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively. These are skills that help our students not only in college, but also in life.

Northwest Catholic has a long tradition of excellence not only in the classroom but on the athletic fields, on stage, and through service to the community. Our students consistently outperform national and state averages in college readiness and Advanced Placement exams. They go on to attend prestigious colleges and universities around the country. Northwest Catholic is a community where tradition “bleeds green,” where students know they belong, and that they make a difference.

It’s a great day to be a Lion!
