I love the family environment at Lancaster Catholic. With personable teachers and diverse students, it ranges from having an excellent sports program to an awesome Fine and Performing Arts department. Everything done at Catholic is done with heart and soul, and many times it’s hard to pick joining one club or organization over another because they offer so many. Most students thrive here, participating in multiple sports, extra-curricular activities, and rigorous coursework; and if they don’t, our support system of facility and friends have their back. Overall, I can say that the time spent here was well worth it and the lessons I learned prepared me for what was to come, so for that I thank Lancaster Catholic and I hope you consider joining our Crusader family!

Lancaster Catholic is a wonderful school for students who are Catholic and non-Catholic. The family atmosphere is evident the second you walk in the building. I like the faculty/student ratio, which allows for everyone to know everyone in the building. I am a huge fan of the retreats that the Campus Ministry department offers, especially Kairos! The Fine & Performing Arts department is excellent and the athletic programs are top notch! Wonderful overall experience.
Lancaster Catholic High School has been the ideal high school for me.The school itself has impacted me greatly and has prepared me for what is yet to come: college. As the years progressed, I found myself falling more and more at ease with Lancaster Catholic. Every day I’m greeted with good mornings from teachers and other faculty members. At lunch, the lunch ladies and I can effortlessly strike up conversation about the meals (which are fantastic by the way) and which ones are our favorites. If I had to change one thing about the school, it would be funding. Due to the schooling being both religious and private, it suffers from a lack of funding and no air conditioning. Besides that, I wouldn’t change a thing. When you leave Lancaster Catholic High School, you leave successful, prepared, and a better person than who you were before. When you return, you are welcomed as a relative of the Crusader Family.
