West Catholic and diocesan administrators are in close contact with our local (county), state and federal (CDC) public health organizations and we are following their recommendations carefully. We ask that you continue to monitor this page for the latest information.


  • Wear a mask when outside to help protect yourself and others in your community.
  • Maintain social distancing when around individuals who do not live in your household.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer as a supplement to hand washing.
  • Stay home if you are sick.

Current Instruction

Immediately following West Catholic's scheduled Christmas Break, students were able to return to full-time in-person instruction. However, families have the option to move their student(s) to virtual instruction. For more information, regarding online learning opportunities, please contact the main office at 616-233-5900.

Online Learning
For students who have made the choice to remain virtual, please be aware of the following: 
  1. Teachers will use Google Meet and Canvas to deliver instruction during their designated class periods.
  2. Students are required to join all meetings and have video turned on.
  3. Students are required to complete all assigned material.
  4. Students will attend Focus periods when required by a teacher. If a student has not been assigned a Focus period, the student can sign up to attend or choose not to attend anything at that time.
  5. Students will attend Household meetings.

Other Academic Programs:

  • All dual enrollment students must adhere to the plans and policies of the college/university to which they are enrolled.
