Academics

As a college-preparatory accredited high school (North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and Western Catholic Education Association), academic excellence is the trademark of Salpointe Catholic High School.  The academic achievements of our present students, as well as an overwhelming number of our graduates, indicate the strength and fullness of Salpointe Catholic’s academic programs.  Because 98% of our graduates continue their education beyond high school, Salpointe Catholic must provide the necessary preparation for higher educational success.  Our graduation requirements are, therefore, more demanding than most schools in order to assure that each student has the opportunity to prepare for college.

Graduation
Salpointe's curriculum is a holistic approach to learning which integrates the intellectual, social, physical, spiritual and psychological dimensions of the developing student through a rigorous four-year program.  During that time, the student must successfully complete at least 26 credits for graduation.

English                     4.0
