Middle school students getting tour of school

Welcome to our Catholic High School community!

To help with the transition to CHS, we have compiled a list of links, dates, and FAQs that we hope will be helpful. You will find answers to most of your questions here but please contact us if we can be of further assistance!

For current parents and students, the CRU Family section of our website is the place to go for what you will need throughout the school year - forms, documents, links and other resources used on a regular or periodic basis.

Feel free to contact the webmaster if you think of additional resources to add to CRU Family

All athletes are required to have a physical on file with the Athletic Director dated after May 1.

Lands' End: How to Order

Used Uniforms: 

We do have some gently used uniform items available.  You may purchase them for $5.00 per item. As the items are donated sporadically, please check with us frequently during business hours throughout the year. Questions?  Mrs. Debbie Davis can be reached at 757-467-2679.

Enrollment & Tuition Contracts

Once a student is admitted, families should enroll their student(s) to save a place in the class. Instructions are included in the acceptance email. This process only takes about 15 minutes and will enable the student to access email, scheduling, and contracts.  Tuition contracts will be sent out in late spring.

FACTS-ParentsWeb (CHS School Portal)

FACTS-ParentsWeb is our school portal.  All parents have an account and can log in to review grades, check schedules and update family information. The parent login can be found under the CRU Family tab on the main menu of our website.
