Halo Highlight - Enroll Early; Get Scheduling Preferences!
Dear Saints Families,
As we continue to plan strategically for the 2020-2021 school year, all returning families MUST re-enroll your student for next year. Our Counseling Department will be starting to map out schedules soon, and if your child is not enrolled, he or she won't be able to make their schedule for next year. Click here to review re-enrollment instructions if you need to, and use your existing ParentsWeb login to complete the very quick process if you haven't already. Please contact Director of Admissions Heather Ieyoub by email or at 436-7275 Ext. 244 with any questions.

STAR Testing Sees Amazing Results in 2nd Year
For the second year in a row, St. Louis Catholic is administering the STAR Reading and STAR Math benchmark tests to students three times throughout the school year and effectively using the data & reports to measure student growth.
Saints English teachers Claudia Brunot and Julie Hebert said these tests have already brought about a positive impact on student learning. For instance, August test results showed 50% of freshman students scoring at or above the benchmark, 32% on watch, and 16% needing intervention, but January’s results showed a 5% increase in freshman students meeting benchmarks and a 5% decrease in students needing intervention.
