Dear Friends of East Catholic, Parents, Students, Alumni, and Visitors,
Thank you for visiting the East Catholic High School website. East Catholic is a vibrant Catholic community serving the greater Hartford region for over 50 years. Together we strive to fulfill our mission to “educate young men and women according to the Gospel and the life of Jesus Christ.” As you enjoy our website’s many pages of news, photos, schedules and information, it is my hope that the love and joy within our community shines through to you.
We prepare young men and women to lead and serve in the Catholic Church, the community, and the world. We aim to foster the development of our students to their full potential, to bring them closer to God, and to help them become leaders. Our students graduate with an exceptional education of mind, spirit, and heart.
This year we are blessed to open a new science, math, and technology wing and new fine arts center. East Catholic has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. While the East Catholic experience is most valuable, we strive to remain affordable to families seeking the best education for their students. East Catholic’s tuition continues to remain the lowest among competitive private schools in the region, and yet we still support families in need with nearly $2 million in tuition assistance.
Our students attend some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country and receive honors for their academic achievements each year. Students consistently cite their teachers as a critical element of their success. Our highly educated teachers motivate our students to fulfill their academic and personal goals.
Beyond our high levels of academic achievement, East Catholic offers extraordinary opportunities to cultivate talent. Our students thrive in our outstanding fine arts program with 14 performing groups, our excellent athletics program with 48 teams, our remarkable service/Campus Ministry program, and many other extracurricular options. At East Catholic, students may pursue all avenues that interest them while serving the greater community. In these ways, we provide our students with a truly exceptional high school experience. Check out our Facebook page for a very close look at daily life at East.
While our virtual presence is informative and fun, I invite you to visit our campus as well. Join us in our effort to make East Catholic the best it can be. We value your support to help recruit the next class of amazing students, improve our campus, provide financial opportunities to our families, or share helpful information about us.
East Catholic is an outstanding community, and I hope to see you soon at one of our events, activities, or games.
Peace in Christ,
Mr. Thomas E. Maynard
Interim Principal and Chief Administrator
