West Catholic High School

Academic Departments

Join a community of students with a range of backgrounds and beliefs that will help enrich your life. Learn from faculty members who care about who you are and what you want to become.

West Catholic Prep will prepare you for life after high school. We have always been well-known in the community for providing our students with rigorous academics and building the discipline they need to achieve at higher levels. Our innovative block schedule provides an experience that is more realistic to post high school life. Increased class time provides both students and teachers the time needed to explore course materials, rather than swiftly moving from class to class throughout the day. It also allows for more electives that offer you an opportunity to focus on the subjects that most interest you.
