Academic rigor has long been a staple of Catholic schools. Walla Walla Catholic Schools’ students, along with other Catholic school students across the nation, outperform their peers in a number of academic areas. Our students are expected to work hard in the classroom and consistently return from their first semesters in college reporting a higher level of preparedness than many of their peers. Under the expert guidance of experienced teachers, our students learn how hard work in the classroom pays off.
Since its inception in 1864, Walla Walla Catholic Schools has worked to exemplify what we see today as our mission to provide “Education for Life; Where Every Student is Needed and Every Student is Important.” Within an ever- changing society, Catholic schools have played an invaluable role in the success of educating our youth and partnering with their parents to form them wholly in body, mind, and spirit. As times and educational practices have changed, Catholic education has held closely to its consistent mission of celebrating and fostering the unique gifts of each child.
