Thanks to an anonymous donor this past year, current WC students are able to attend all regular season HOME athletic events for free! The athletic department is excited to share this gift with our students. For everyone else, we are now accepting purchases for our regular season family/adult/student passes and VIP parking passes. VIP parking passes allow for easy parking at varsity football games. You must have a VIP pass in order to park in the VIP parking area.

For your convenience, we have changed our order process to online. Please go to community.grwestcatholic.org/athletics-passes to order the passes necessary for your families. Orders are due by September 10. Don't forget, if you have a current WC student, they will be receiving a free student pass!

Go Falcons!

As sports have started up again, the athletic department is in active communication with administration and health officials to ensure the safety of all of our student-athletes. Currently, the MHSAA does not have any COVID-19 protocols in place, however, this could change. We will be sure to keep families updated if any new rules or regulations are put in place. Until then, we look forward to holding practices and games as usual.

Now is a good time for seniors to consider signing up for the SAT. And if you've already taken it, retaking the SAT in August or in the fall of your senior year is likely to boost your scores (and open more college admissions opportunities). Testing in August will ensure that you have your scores back in time to meet deadlines for early admission.

Registration for the SAT is open to all students for the 2021-22 school year on the College Board website.
