Falcons Fly High!

Welcome Class of 2027

West Catholic teachers, staff and students were so excited to welcome our incoming 9th graders to campus. We had a great orientation where students received everything they needed for the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year while making connections with older students in their Household communities.

    Faith in Action

    Back-to-School Mass & BBQ

    On Friday, August 18, we had hundreds of students and their families join us on camps to celebrate the beginning of the school year! After welcoming our newest Falcons at orientation, we held our annual Back-to-School Mass, BBQ and pep rally. We couldn’t have asked for a better day with our WC community!
