West Catholic has been preparing students for the next level of their lives, whether that was college, the workforce, or the armed forces since it opened. Now it’s official. Under the name West Catholic Preparatory High School we are committed to taking this even further. While it has been documented that our graduating students are receiving impressive amounts of scholarships for college and attending some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country, we plan on weaving the preparatory mentality into everything we do here at West Catholic. Our curriculum, extracurricular activities, athletics, and everything else will be geared towards graduating students who are better than when they walked through our doors as freshman. We offer clubs and lessons in state of the art technologymusic, art, and culinary techniques

The preparatory aspect of the education offered here at West Catholic goes well beyond academic success, developing characteristics such as work ethic, creativity, critical thinking, handling adversity, and many others.

West Catholic has always been a preparatory school, providing our students with valuablee skills and learning that they can lean on throughout their lives. We are now more committed and focused than ever before on making this a conscious, integral part of our students’ education.


West Catholic displayed commitment to earning its “Preparatory” title by establishing strategic partnerships with Drexel, Penn, and USciences, partnerships that will help our students in several areas. By learning about these schools our students can discover new majors and career paths, learn beneficial information about the financial aid process, and get a better understanding of what it takes to succeed in college. Being so close to these renowned institutions is truly a unique advantage for West Catholic. We’re giving our students first-hand experience and knowledge to better prepare them for their collegiate careers.
