As an Archdiocesan High School, we strive to instill the Church's teachings in each student and their personal relationship with God. Our students are required to take four years of religion and attend monthly all-school masses.
In addition, each class participates in a minimum of one retreat, or a day of prayer, during the academic year. Juniors participate in a three-day Kairos retreat in which they spend time in prayerful reflection in an environment where a strong relationship with Jesus is encouraged. Click retreats for more information on our retreat program.
Our students are called to serve locally and within the community at large. To advance our mission, we require that students complete annual Christian Service hours.
  • Freshmen: 20 hours
  • Sophomores: 25 hours
  • Juniors: 35 hours
  • Seniors: 70 hours

Students receive a .1 unit of credit for successful completion of Christian Service Hours each year.

Service sites typically include local hospitals, retirement and nursing home facilities, non-profit organizations, schools and daycares. Opportunities to serve beyond the St. Louis boundaries are available through annual service trips over the winter and summer months. These trips have included Joplin and Ellington, MO and Tupelo, MS. There are also active Pro-Life and Campus Ministry clubs available for students to join.

The benefits of CHRISTIAN SERVICE hours extend far beyond the service itself. It is our hope that this experience will be the beginning of a life-long commitment to service.


Students are encouraged to join our Pro-Life Club which educates people about Pro-Life issues, prays for those who are vulnerable, and provides service in the community. They meet monthly during academic hour to discuss upcoming events. Click PRO-LIFE for more information about this club. 

Campus Ministry plans, organizes, and implements all-school Masses. They also host canned food drives, shoe drives, and other services throughout the school year.
