Continuous Enrollment Coming Soon

Date:  January 10, 2020

We are excited to announce that West Catholic is moving to Continuous Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. We look forward to better serving West Catholic families through this easier, more convenient enrollment/re-enrollment process.

Please take a minute to watch this short video about the upcoming change: youtu.be/ZzIjaH3t9ts

Continuous enrollment forms will be sent out on January 31, 2020. You can also visit grwestcatholic.org/enrollment to learn more about the continuous enrollment process and read through our FAQs.

Please contact Admissions Director Todd Peters at toddpeters@grwestcatholic.org or 616-233-5920 with any additional questions.

Exam Schedule and Details

Date:  January 12, 2020

Our first semester exams are being held this week beginning on Tuesday. Please see the schedule below. It is also on our school calendar on the website.

The exam time blocks are 9-10:15 a.m. (15 minute break) and 10:30-11:45 a.m. Students remain in their exams for the entire time block. If a student has a study hall or no exam for a class, they are not required to report to school during that time. They are welcome to be here and study in the MAK if they would like. There will be busing to school at the regularly scheduled time (again students are welcome to study in the MAK before school). There will not be busing home after exams. Students are not allowed to switch exams because of convenience (i.e.: don’t want to come in on a certain day). Students must be in uniform for all of the exams. Any changing of an exam schedule must be done in advance through administration. There will be breakfast available from 8-9 a.m., Tuesday through Thursday in the MAK.   

In the event of a snow day, the scheduled exams would be held on the next day. There would still be no school on Monday, Jan. 20. The 7th-hour exam and make-ups would be on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
