Considering a Catholic High School?

Providence Heights Alpha School makes a commitment to preparing our students for all High Schools in the area and over the years we have seen our students attend and succeed in many of them. In 7th and 8th grade, we begin to discuss High

School options with our students as our faculty and staff begin to prepare them for this next step. 

As part of our commitment to Catholic Education, we allow surrounding Catholic High Schools to visit our student's during school to share information about who they are and what they have to offer. 

This page provides information and links for our families to begin their research and come to understand some of these schools.
