From The Highlands School

Our mission at The Highlands School is clear: Education to face the world, formation to change it. The Highlands School is a Pre-K3 through 12th grade Catholic college preparatory school. Our enrollment is just under 350 students. Our smaller school environment affords students a higher teacher to student ratio, more opportunities to participate in extracurricular and sports activities, and creates a marvelous family atmosphere that fosters the flourishing of the individual. Our school is best known for its strong academics and the full development of all aspects of the person. This is fruit of our four-tiered Integral Formation® methodology which focuses on the intellectual, spiritual, character, and apostolic development of each student. Highlighting this is the recognition we have received being named to the National Catholic High School Honor Roll every year since 2004, Cardinal Newman Society. We have been named 4 years in a row, Best of Irving - Private Charter School.
