Mission Statement

Montini Catholic High School is a family-centered, co-educational, college preparatory high school, rooted in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ as emulated by St. John Baptist De La Salle and committed to the education of the whole person. Our LaSallian tradition recognizes the sacredness of all persons and educates students of diverse abilities, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Each student is expected to participate in an educational setting that will emphasize the message of Christ, service, and responsibility to Church, family and community.

Montini Catholic strives to make each student's educational experience unique to their needs. Through a rigorous academic program, paired with service learning and faith-based education, our students graduate ready to face their collegiate years.

EDUCATORS
74% of our faculty hold masters degrees or higher. Many are coaches, moderators of clubs and participate in areas of campus ministry and service. 13 faculty & staff members are alumni of MCHS and have returned to their alma mater. 

CURRICULUM
Our curriculum allows students to take courses within four levels: Signum Fidei, College Prep, Honors and Advanced Placement. These levels are determined by Placement Exam results, Proficiency Exam results and Grade School and High School teacher recommendations. Students are not put into one single track, but rather they are placed into classes that engage and aid in learning at their level.

Montini is proud to offer 14 Advanced Placement Courses and 28 Honors Level Courses for the 2019-20 School year.
