Encourage Critical Thinking Skills and Creativity

The academic program at Quigley Catholic High School offers students a variety of instructional resources and methods that meet their various academic needs to encourage critical thinking skills and creativity. Additionally, each Quigley Catholic High School student has a plan for success through the numerous programs developed by the Guidance Department.

A Comprehensive, Challenging, College Preparatory Curriculum

To prepare students fully for a post-secondary education, Quigley Catholic High School equips students with the tools they need for success—a comprehensive, challenging, college preparatory curriculum with three levels of classes to meet the individual student’s abilities. A small class size average of 20 students allows for individualized attention while specialty classes are consistent with society’s competitive climate. The staff to student ratio allows the faculty to have its finger on the student pulse at all times. This is a huge factor in a positive school environment.

College Credits That Are Transferable

The Quigley Catholic High School curriculum furnishes students with a solid core education. Additionally, Advanced Placement (AP) classes offer an extra challenge for students excelling in different areas. QCHS is partnered with Carlow University, LaRoche College and the University of Pittsburgh to provide classes that satisfy QCHS requirements, and allow students to potentially earn 27 college credits that are transferable to most colleges and universities. A significant percentage of upperclassmen are enrolled in the Honors Programs.

Parents Stay Updated

MMS is a real-time online portal for monitoring student grades, which are entered by each teacher. Both parent and student have access to MMS, and it is password protected to ensure privacy.  MMS allows even the busiest parent to stay updated on their child’s grades.
