Upon graduation, students will possess the academic and life skills necessary to succeed at the academic institution of their choice. With the help of our tremendous College Guidance Department, the past three graduating classes have earned over $30 million in merit scholarship dollars while averaging a 99% college/university attendance rate.
The 1% of our graduates that do not attend college immediately following high school, are proudly serving our country in the military.
