School Profile

Choosing Catholic education is a decision that is made with much thought, deliberation, and prayer; and we at Berks Catholic High School are excited to partner with you and your family.
At Berks Catholic, the core of our mission is our four pillars God, Family, School and Fun which helps us shape the development of our students spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically.

GOD: We are a Catholic high school that is welcoming and respectful of all faith traditions. Because we are Christ-centered, the value and dignity of every individual and all life is emphasized in all we do; and students are afforded opportunities and encouraged to cultivate their relationships with each other and with God.
 
FAMILY: “It’s like a family.”

An extraordinary sense of community is palpable at Berks Catholic as well. Holding true to Catholic and Christian tradition, students have a responsibility to one another, are accountable for their actions, and have a built in support system that is an extension of your immediate family.
ACADEMICS: Caring, committed faculty challenge every student to realize their intellectual potential.
In addition, each student receives individualized, college and career counseling from college admissions professionals.

Over 95% of Berks Catholic students will pursue higher education immediately after graduation. The Class of 2015 earned $10.16 in college scholarships and grants.

Berks Catholic offers the opportunity for academic success through a robust offering of College-Preparatory, Honors, and 21 Advanced Placement classes.

Students who are more “hands-on” and technically inclined are able to enroll in a vocational track at the Berks Career and Technology Center while still pursuing a college-prep curriculum.

The Office of College and Career Counseling is here to help your child find the right fit for them in their life after Berks Catholic. Our teachers are charged everyday with being great for their students and helping them get to Heaven.
