Knowledge for Life.
Columbus Catholic High School offers a highly structured environment where students progress both academically and personally. Students can enroll in challenging Honors and Advanced Placement courses, and seniors can take concurrent credit courses here on campus or dual enroll in classes at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo. Students have the potential to graduate with a total of 23 concurrent college credit hours.
Students can also earn college credit in Advanced Placement courses by achieving a designated score, and may take online courses that are not offered within the school. All Columbus Catholic High School students take the ACT exam during their junior and/or senior year.
Students receive instruction in our Catholic faith on a daily basis through religion classes as well as preparation for receiving Catholic sacraments. Our students are provided with the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation twice a year.
Religious education includes coursework in Values, Drug Prevention, Human Relationships, Hebrew Scriptures, World Religions, Christian Morality, Christology and Social Ministry. All Columbus Catholic High School students participate in small Faith Sharing groups with adult leaders once per month.
Elective courses in music, art and vocational/life skills are also offered so students can expand their interests – and develop new ones.
