Cardinal Ritter High School truly embodied its 5 pillars of faith, academics, athletics, arts, and culture. Firstly, the school embodies its culture through its diverse student body. Secondly, Cardinal Ritter emphasized its arts and athletics, so that students who had interests in both had many options to explore. Additionally, Ritter offers a plethora of classes for students to choose from which includes dual-credit and advanced placement classes that truly prepare a student for college. Lastly, the Catholic identity that Cardinal Ritter embodies is a crucial part of its foundation. From morning prayers to monthly liturgies, Cardinal Ritter is strengthened through its faith. With these 5 pillars all emphasized, my high school career was truly memorable and crucial to my college journey that I am about to embark on.
