Saints Back Safely

Below you will find important updates, letters from our administration, frequently asked questions and valuable resources. We encourage you to scroll to the bottom and check back regularly for the latest information. Right now our top priority is  bringing our Saints Back Safely and on campus as soon as possible for the 2020-21 school year. 

The Diocese of Phoenix, AIA, CDC and the Arizona Departments of Education and Health have determined that we must start the school year on-line from August 14 to Sept. 8. After that, if certain benchmarks are met in terms of the number of positive COVID-19 cases among individuals tested, we will open our campus using the Hybrid Model. When we receive the "all clear" to bring our Saints Back Safely, we will follow all the rules and do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy while we provide a rigorous college prep education in a faith-filled Catholic community. We can't wait for that day!

Please continue to pray for all those affected by the novel Coronavirus and for those working to heal them.


When we open our campus, students will be required to follow the three easy steps listed above every day.
