LAPLACE — St. Charles Catholic High School will open its doors at 5 p.m. March 20 to all community members interested in exploring other opportunities and learning more about SCC — academics, arts, service, faith and athletics.

Parents, family members and prospective students are encouraged to attend to meet SCC’s new principal, faculty, coaching staff and talk to students about classes and activities.

The early high school years, eighth and ninth grade, are very important to a student’s future performance in high school as well as college, organizers said.

SCC strives to develop young men and women as faith-filled students.

As parents choose a high school that will best prepare their teenager for college, parents and students should keep in mind the unique features that make SCC the educational and spiritual leader of the River Parishes, organizers said.

Parents will have the opportunity to explore a prekindergarten through 12th grade Catholic education for all of our students in the River Region.

The following schools will also be on hand at the newly renovated campus in LaPlace on March 20: St. Peter School in Reserve, Ascension of Our Lord School in LaPlace, St. Joan of Arc School in LaPlace and St. Charles Borromeo School in Destrehan.

Organizers said at St. Charles Catholic, all students have the opportunity to excel academically, spiritually, athletically and artistically.

The goal at St. Charles Catholic High School is to prepare children for success in this world (evidenced by higher ACT scores, higher HS and college graduation rates) and beyond (forming their hearts in the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ), incoming principal Courtney P. Millet said.

“Strong academic results open the door to success and the college level; therefore, Catholic high schools are worth the investment to prepare high school students for college and careers,” Millet said. “There is a direct positive future benefit to the tuition investment made by parents during the high school years.”
