Pennsylvania’s leading Catholic Day School for Boys, Grades 9-12

Back to School Information 2019-2020

Welcome back to school!

This web page is designed to assist all new and returning students with preparing for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. 

In early August, each family should have received their official “Back-to-School” mailing. Within that mailing were the printed school calendar, several letters, memos, and documents that are also available for your review on this Back-to-School website. That said, the mailing did not include all of the items listed on this page, so please review this page thoroughly and please remember to access the link and read the Student Handbook prior to the first day.

Enjoy your remaining days! We are ready to greet you during the week of August 26!

The following is the schedule for the first week of classes:
