We are proud to be a Catholic School accredited by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the State of Indiana through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

- Attend weekly all-school Masses
- Masses planned by classes with full student participation
- Opportunity for Reconciliation with Fr. Nick
- Participation in Sacraments in conjunction with the St. Matthew Parish Faith Formation program
- Stations of the Cross
- Last Supper re-enactment
- May Crowning
- Canned Food Collections and Easter Basket Distribution
- Service Projects, such as our dg-2 group
- Vocation trips to Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg and to St. Meinrad
We also continue to be proud of our academic performance.
