We owe it to ourselves and to our Creator to develop the gifts and talents we have been given. The bar is set high—but not out of reach—for each of our students according to their individualized need, encouraging them to grasp their fullest academic potential.

Faith & Service

We know that faith without works is incomplete. In the spirit of that connection, we offer students a chance to develop their faith—through both study and application—with an education that is authentically and unapologetically Catholic.

Physical Activity & Athletics

We are called to take care of our bodies, and athletics are a great way to have fun doing it. Above all, developing core skillsets like teamwork, perseverance, and humility can translate effortlessly to all other aspects of our lives.

Fine Arts

We were designed to create. Not only does art fulfill a fundamental need for us to express ourselves and think about the world in new ways, but it also contributes to the academic, emotional, and social well-being of our students.

Every student's array of personal interests is as unique as they are. That's why RCS supports dozens of extracurricular teams, clubs, and groups—so your student can explore, experiment, and excel in whatever interests them.
