High School

Welcome to Saint Stanislaus High School  

Saint Stanislaus is excited to welcome new members to our high school program! We understand that transitioning from middle school to high school is a significant event. It is essential that they receive support from teachers, parents, counselors, and administrators. The move to high school is a critical juncture for students, both academically and socially. We are fully prepared to assist them in making this successful transition.

IT BEGINS WITH ACADEMICS…  

The Saint Stanislaus academic program offers courses that meet a broad scope of students’ interests and needs. Our rigorous and varied curriculum in English, foreign languages, mathematics, science, and social studies prepares our students for success. Our students are challenged to discover their individual potential and set goals. With the support of our teachers, administrators, counselors, and staff, they can accomplish these goals. The foundations and expectations for academic success are established in the middle school years. These foundations and expectations are expanded, annually, as the student progresses toward graduation.

By the end of their seventh-grade core curriculum, students are evaluated and recommended for either Pre-Algebra or Algebra I in the eighth grade. The rigorous academic curriculum in seventh and eighth grades prepares students for their transition to high school. In their freshman year at Saint Stanislaus, students get to choose a foreign language and an arts credit. As they progress through their sophomore, junior, and senior years, a wide variety of elective courses become available. Electives include Science, Technology, Business, Art, Band, Life Skills, Foreign Language, Social Studies, and Finance. These courses are designed to supplement the core curriculum requirements.

Honors and Advanced Placement Classes 

Saint Stanislaus is proud to challenge academically qualified students by offering Honors and Advanced Placement courses. To encourage our students to work toward their potential, and to provide opportunities for a broader education, we provide an honors program for students in their sophomore, junior, and senior years. While honors classes are offered beginning in the eighth grade, a qualified student officially enrolls in the Honors Program at the beginning of the tenth grade. Upon completing the honors curriculum, he will receive an honors diploma at graduation.  

Advanced Placement (AP) classes are also available to students beginning in the sophomore year. Participation in both AP and Honors classes is contingent upon recommendation from faculty and administration and both require dedication and diligence from the student. College credit is available to students who perform well on the AP final assessment.

OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES PROVIDE ENGAGEMENTS  

Along with academics, we highly encourage our high school students to participate in our many sports teams, clubs, and activities. We want our students to be engaged in the classroom and in activities outside of the classroom. On the athletic field, we offer fourteen varsity-level sports programs ranging from time-honored sports such as baseball, football, and basketball to new additions including esports and lacrosse. We also have several club activities including robotics, radio, board games, drama, and magic. Saint Stanislaus offers a wide variety of sports and activities for our students.   

COMMUNITY SERVICE IS PART OF OUR CURRICULUM  

Community service is a deep-seated part of the Saint Stanislaus experience. The Saint Stanislaus Service Program helps students put their faith into action as we guide students to develop empathy and a desire to help others.  High school students meet their service requirements by volunteering in various activities in our local community or in their community at home. More information regarding our service program may be found here.

SOCIAL EVENTS ARE ON THE CALENDAR  

Across the street from Saint Stanislaus is Our Lady of Academy, an all-girls high school. The girls from OLA are active in athletic and social events with our students. They participate in our homecoming events, cheer at our games, and attend our social functions throughout the year.  

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR ROCK-A-CHAW DAYS 

 Your high school experience is something that you will cherish and remember forever. During this time, you will meet new classmates, participate in various activities, and learn from your teachers, all of which will create some of the most memorable moments of your life. As you start as a young freshman, you will learn about yourself and the world around you. However, as you graduate and receive your diploma, you will leave as a young adult ready to take on the challenges of college or the workforce. Even as you move on to your next adventure, you will always have a special bond with your classmates, teachers, and alumni.  

The Saint Stanislaus experience is a special one. We invite you to be a part of the Rock-A-Chaw community.
