a message from principal harris

Dear Future Crusader Parent:

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Althoff Catholic High School. As you may know, we recently celebrated 50 years of educating young people, in the Catholic tradition, to lead successful, faith-filled lives. I am proud of the impact our 10,000 alumni have had on our community, our nation and our world.

Watching our current students achieve their personal best in the classroom, grow in faith and develop their talents on the athletic field  or on stage is what I like best about being the principal of Althoff Catholic High School.

As a diocesan high school, we proudly serve students of diverse academic abilities. On average, 98% of our graduates continue on to college. Through participation in our Saint Louis University 1818 Advanced College Credit program, many of our alumni have even completed college early. I am proud of the academic rigor we offer at Althoff Catholic. Our average ACT scores and percentage of graduates that continue on to college consistently exceeds the state and national averages.

What sets us apart is the ability to offer an outstanding academic program in a small, faith-based, family-like environment. There are many advantages to being part of a small learning community. At Althoff Catholic, your child will have more opportunities to explore their interests through academic, leadership and service clubs as well as in athletics.

We welcome 6th through 8th grade students who are considering Althoff Catholic to experience our school first-hand through our “Crusader for a Day” program.
