Mission: The mission of Paul VI Catholic High School is to provide an excellent Catholic education to young men and women by affording them the means to achieve spiritual, intellectual, personal, social, and physical development according to the teachings of the Gospel and St. Francis de Sales. Paul VI Catholic High School is committed to graduating responsible, moral, service oriented young adults who will continue to “grow in grace and wisdom.”

Programs: The Options Program provides an award-winning modified inclusive catholic education for high school students with intellectual disabilities. Options nurtures the maturation of inquisitive, creative, confident and motivated students. The goal is to maximize student’s God-given potential while enabling their independence.  The students are part of the overall school community and participate in school activities.  An active Peer Mentor Program enhances the interaction of Options students with the community as a whole.

Services provided:

  • Highly individualized academic program
  • Low student-to-teacher ratios (no more than 5-to-1).
  • Core Academics – taught by special educators in a classroom along with assistance from peer mentors
  • Vibrant Special Olympics team
  • Strong Transitions Program
  • Involvement in extra-curricular sports and clubs
Students accepted into this program have mild to moderate mental retardation and no serious emotional or behavioral issues. Parents must also agree to actively participate on the Options Parent Advisory Committee.  In the case of an Options’ student, a “Certificate of Completion” is presented at graduation in lieu of a diploma. The certificate signifies that the student has completed all of his/her course work and is entitled to participate in all graduation exercises.
