The mission of Catholic High School is to teach Gospel values in an environment of academic excellence according to Catholic tradition and the spirit of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. Located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Catholic High School is an all-male institution established in 1894 by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, a religious order founded in France in 1821. Centered on a holistic approach to education, the school challenges each student to learn from his total experience of the CHS community. The school’s programs address the religious, academic, social, psychological, physical, and cultural development of the young man in an orderly, disciplined atmosphere. The school culture is transmitted by nurturing teachers who provide the personal attention for which CHS is known. Named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence five times, the school’s college preparatory curriculum is constantly evolving and offers challenging core subjects, along with honors and AP courses, and a variety of electives. Students are encouraged to join one or more of the 33 award-winning extracurricular activities and 11 championship-caliber interscholastic sports. Maintaining academic excellence by focusing on 21st century skills and increasing students’ college readiness scores remains a priority. A 1:1 laptop program, initiated in the 2013-2014 school year, supports instruction in every class. Most importantly, the curriculum embodies the holistic, Gospel-centered philosophy of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart that teaches each student that he is loved by God and is a valued part of a faith community that extends well beyond the school.
