CURRICULUM

Where Passion Meets Purpose

At the center of our academic program is the desire to provide students with enriching experiences that help advance their passions, develop a lifelong desire for learning, and ultimately apply what they love to achieve their academic goals to create their future successes. Our multi-level curriculum allows all students to challenge themselves and succeed.

We understand the world students will live and work in will look very different from our world today. Therefore, we strive to prepare them for rapidly evolving careers and help them develop a broad worldview built on an education that values academics, the arts, faith, service, and the importance of creating lasting relationships.

Creating Lifelong Learners and Leaders

Our students are prepared for the future and empowered to excel in college and their careers through a challenging and integrated curriculum designed to foster critical thinking and hands-on learning. Students are guided by high standards of academic integrity and encouraged to participate in discussions in and outside the classroom. 

At Althoff Catholic, we believe you need experience to grow. We encourage students to take a challenging class, try out for a new sport or activity, take a class that helps them explore their interests, and step outside of their comfort zone. Each of these experiences shapes our students as people and can add tremendous value to their high school years and beyond. Our 14:1 student-to-teacher ratio = more personalized attention, closer relationships with teachers, and true engagement!
