Letter to Families
Dear Lancer Families,

Congratulations on a successful fall semester! We could not be more grateful for your energy and enthusiasm for our sacred mission here at Salpointe Catholic. 

We are holding true to our mission of pursuing excellence thanks to our faculty’s passion for teaching, our staff’s dedication to education, and our new block schedule. Salpointe is committed to a holistic learning environment benchmarked by intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, artistic and emotional growth. Our Lancers are learning to embrace a healthy balance in their lives and, when surveyed, they confirm that this year (with the new activity periods) is less stressful and more fun than years past.
