Catholic schools exist, as an extension of the Universal Church, to foster the spiritual and faith development of young people. To that end, Father Lacombe High School offers every student the opportunity to experience daily Prayer, annual Retreats, Liturgical Celebrations and a variety of charity projects or social justice programs.

These activities complement the central focus of the school, which is its academic character. Religious Studies courses reflect the “educational” component of faith. Father Lacombe High School students are required to complete 9 credits in this area by taking the appropriate 3-credit course in each of their three years of enrollment. The successful completion of these courses qualifies students for participation in Graduation Ceremonies.
