Upcoming Special Programs and Events

Catholic Education

A faithful Catholic education can prepare students not only for a career, but for life. To get a taste of the value of a faithful Catholic education, high school students are encouraged to look at summer programs at the colleges recommended in The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

These programs are a great opportunity for high school students to strengthen their academic and extracurricular skills, grow in their spiritual lives, get a head-start on college visits, learn from distinguished professors, make lifelong friends, and experience what faithful Catholic education is all about.
