This is a great opportunity for new parents to learn more about our school and the West Catholic community as well as a chance for returning families to share their WC experience with others. Administrators, including Superintendent Dave Faber and Principal Cindy Kneibel, will also be in attendance, greeting parents and answering any questions you may have.

Parking spots can be purchased by students for $25. Students must have a drivers license in order to purchase a parking spot. The student will receive a tag with a specific spot number and they must park in their designated spot each day. Students not parked in their correct assigned parking spot may receive a detention or have their vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.

As noted in the student handbook, students will obey all regular traffic laws while driving on campus. Speeding or reckless driving around school subjects the driver to immediate suspension and/or loss of driving privileges on campus, as determined by the Administration.

The parking registration form is available to print below.

This year, two West Catholic students were selected to participate in the Teen Entrepreneurship Summer Academy at Grand Valley State University’s Seidman School of Business. Rising sophomores Jacob Droski and Jacob North were accepted into the program with about 45 other students from area schools, including Rockford, Forest Hills, East Grand Rapids and City High.

Participants broke into small groups and were tasked with creating and developing a business idea that would help reduce poverty in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Jacob Droski and Jacob North were both selected as CEOs for their respective teams. After a week of participating in events, workshops, visits to startup incubators and a poverty simulation, teams presented their plans. A panel of local business leaders judged each presentation on concept and execution.

Out of the eight teams involved in the competition, our Falcon CEOs placed first and second. Jacob Droski’s team was awarded the top prize of $2,500 and Jacob North’s team was awarded second place and $1,500. Congratulations to both participants on this great achievement!
