Halo Highlight: St. Louis Catholic is Working Hard for You!

Dear St. Louis Catholic Community,


Today's newsletter is filled with examples of how we have continued to march on, stay OPEN and active for our families and students. You will read about two senior athletes who have signed to compete at the collegiate level, plus find important academic updates regarding the tremendous work that our students and teachers have diligently worked through this past month. You will see examples of lessons and even a sweet surprise from our beloved Class of 2020.


Most importantly, trust that our team is working tirelessly to honor the sacrifice from each family to support St. Louis Catholic High School. Saints are truly MARCHING ON!

FACTS/Tuition Assistance

Our Saints have learned and grown remarkably throughout this period of remote learning, as our goals of providing your children with a stellar education and a strong foundation of faith remain our driving force. We hope you've seen the fruits of your investment over the past month!


With the needs of our community in mind, we have extended the 2020-2021 application deadline for Tuition Assistance & Scholarships to May 10, 2020. For more information on applying online, please watch the video below, or contact Ray Baggett, Director of Finance, at rbaggett@slchs.org.

Academic Updates

Please CLICK HERE to read specifics on grade calculation changes and more updates concerning academics and the AP exams, which are now optional for students. Our team has spent countless hours ensuring assessments and grading procedures would be fair and equitable during this time.

Course Verifications Coming Soon

If your student is concerned about their schedule for next year, don't worry! The Counseling Team is looking through every student's transcript to make sure they are meeting graduation requirements, and course verifications will be sent once all teacher recommendations are finalized and we hear from McNeese on Dual Enrollment guidance.


Once you receive your Course Verification form, your student may make changes by simply drawing a line through a course, writing in the new course and completing the Course Recommendation Waiver if moving into a course level higher than the one recommended by SLCHS.

COR Expedition 2020 Update

During these uncertain times, we have had many questions about the COR Expedition trip planned for this July. We have been in contact with Wyoming Catholic College and those in charge of the expeditions. As of now, things are continuing as planned.


With that, if you are financial able and your student would like to attend, we ask that he or she please obtain a letter of recommendation from your pastor, minister, or youth director and write a short reflection of 500 words on why they would like to be a part of this life-changing experience. These two requirements are due to Coach Bit Thompson by Friday, May 1.


Travel accommodations will be taken care of once we have all the details for students attending the trip. The cost of the retreat will be around $1,000, which includes the accommodations, transportation, most meals, and all fees related to the activities. You will receive more information as the application process continues and the date approaches. If you have any questions, please contact Coach Bit at ethompson@slchs.org.

Remote Learning in Action

Our students and faculty have continued to impress us in remote learning!


In these videos, freshman Personal Finance students analyze how the stimulus package will help American families as part of National Financial Literacy Month, and AP U.S. History teacher Jason Oertling takes his class on a "Galley Walk of the 1850s" in preparation for the AP exam May 15.
