Join us for our Experience West Night! You will have the opportunity to take a campus tour with one of our current students, hear from the experience of current parents, see what is happening at West Catholic, and learn about the next steps of the enrollment process. There will also be time to connect with various faculty and staff members to get all your questions answered.

20223 Date TBA

The West Catholic 5th-Grade visit is typically offered in the fall. Visiting 5th-grade students eat lunch, meet teachers and staff, and take part in an interactive tour to experience a day in the life of a West Catholic student. This visit is meant to motivate and inspire students by showing 5th graders what awaits them after their K-8 graduation.

*West Catholic High School will transport 5th-grade students from Diocesan Catholic middle schools, so parents will still drop their child off and pick their child up as they normally would from their school.

**Any 5th-grade student is invited to attend. If your student does not attend a Diocesan Catholic school and you would like to sign them up, please email [email protected]. Our admissions director will ensure that your student can participate.
