ACADEMICS


St. Genevieve prepares students for their future by providing a quality academic and moral education.

Because we’re a small school, our teachers, coaches, and administrators give one-on-one attention to every student.  No one gets lost on campus; nobody falls through the cracks in our classes.

 St. Genevieve graduates aren’t only ready for college – they’re prepared for life. 

Our alumni are responsible, Christ-centered citizens.  They’re effective communicators, technology users and collaborative workers.  They’re critical thinkers, problem solvers and lifelong learners.

 In short, they’re young men and women of character prepared to lead.
