Morris Catholic is dedicated to the goal of academic excellence for all of its students. In pursuit of this standard, our faculty, guidance department and administration work cooperatively to provide individual attention and quality teaching, infused with strong Catholic values.

Morris Catholic gives our students an academic home where they are challenged to become the man or woman they were made to be. Our curriculum forms them ...

intellectually

artistically

athletically

spiritually

morally

We work to develop those gifts that are apparent and those are yet hidden. That is why our program offers the following:

  • Seventeen AP courses
  • A nationally ranked Performing Arts program
  • Five world language opportunities
  • Various internships for seniors (Guidance, Marketing, Athletic Training, & Physics)
  • Schoology online learning
  • iPad 1-to-1 Program
  • 8 day rotating schedule with Commons period for extra help
 
The Magna Corda Honors Program brings together those students who desire the highest academic challenge and our Aquinas Support

System offers a scaffolded approach to academic efficacy. A superb Guidance Staff shepherds our students from enrollment to graduation.

 

99% of seniors in the Class of 2018 were accepted to universities around the world.  Over 50% of seniors from the classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018 earned over $100,000 of college scholarship. Students in the Class of 2018 were accepted by and are attending The University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, Boston University, Villanova, American University, Case Western Reserve, NYU, and many other institutions.    

 

All we learn at Morris Catholic is with and through and knowledge of the love of Christ ... Scientia Caritatis Christi.  This means that our lens for viewing secondary education is our very faith in Christ.

 

The Four Thrival Skills

As a school in the contemporary era, Morris Catholic seeks to instill what are often called "21st century learning skills" into its curriculum and approach to everyday life.
 
We have developed what we call the "Four Thrival Skills".  For those students who master these skills, our research has found that they succeed in college and well into their early career.  
 
  1. Living from a set of personally held values
  2. Leading with courage
  3. Working collaboratively towards goals
  4. Communicating effectively
