About Us


The Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools offer families the opportunity for a fully-integrated life where school, the practice of faith, the extra-curricular life of our children, who our friends are, and the experiences we share together, all become part of a whole. This is one of the many blessings that being part of the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools family provides. This sense of community and commitment is one of many reasons that our families have chosen the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools.


Values

What do you want your child to value?
How do children learn to distinguish right from wrong? When the challenges of childhood appear, as they do for everyone, it is comforting to know that the spiritual framework of community surrounds your student—faculty your child can trust, friends he or she can rely upon, acceptance based on each person’s unique qualities. The values taught in your home are reinforced in our schools. There probably has never been a tougher time to be a parent, which is why there has never been a better time to choose the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools. We are your partners in your child’s development and education.


Faith

What do you want your child to believe?
The Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools are faith-based communities where belief in God is part of the every day environment, not just in theology class. Students attend weekly mass, prepare for and receive sacraments, engage in community service at each grade level, as they grow together in faith. We encourage you to give every aspect of your child’s character an opportunity to flourish. By choosing the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools, it means never having to choose between your child’s academic success and their moral and spiritual development.


Focus

Where should your child’s focus be?
The Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools are committed to providing the maximum amount of education during each school day and hold our students to high standards and expectations to ensure that each student benefits. Our safe and orderly environments allow our students to spend their school time productively in order to achieve their best academically.


Support

What is a child’s education worth?
When it comes to your child’s future, how do you determine what their education is worth? A Catholic education is not free; however it is an investment in your child’s future. Families believe that it is worth every penny, providing a return that is priceless.

Although tuition continues to be an excellent value, we realize that it may put a strain on some families’ budgets. In order to assist families in providing for a Catholic school education, tuition assistance, through the Battle Creek Area Catholic
Schools Foundation is available.


Academics

What do you want your child to learn?
Focusing on test scores, or teaching to the test has changed the way that many schools now instruct students. In the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools, we understand their importance, and our students consistently do achieve much higher than average scores, but we know that tests are only one way to measure student success. High standards, strong motivation, effective discipline and an atmosphere of caring combine to foster excellence.


Community

What do you want your child to share?
All students participate in service learning, in giving to their own school and parish community, our local community as well as the global community. The Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools offer families the opportunity for a fully integrated life-where school, the practice of faith, the extra-curricular life of our children, who our friends are, and the experiences we share together, all become part of a whole. This is one of the many blessings that being part of the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools family provides. This sense of community and commitment is one of many reasons that our families have chosen the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools.
