Military Families

The military community is heavily represented at Catholic High School.  A large part of our student body hails from military families. We are especially fortunate that over half of our faculty and staff are associated with the armed forces as veterans, reserve personnel, retired military or military spouses.  Their unique perspective and vast experiences open the world to our students.

Our military families add diversity, flexibility and warmth to our community. We regularly welcome new families throughout the year and strive to help these students assimilate to their new home. In an effort to make transitions easier for our military families, a special group of student volunteers, our Military Student Advisors, are available to help answer questions, walk through schedules and introduce students to life as a Crusader. 

We are grateful for all our military families do for us and the sacrifices they make to keep us safe and free.  We would be honored if you would consider us your choice for excellence in education. You will find a home at Catholic High School!

Military Student Advisor Team

Our team of Military Student Advisors act as a bridge for our new military-connected students to Crusader life. Their own military experiences coupled with their enthusiasm for CHS help our new students feel welcomed and valued.
