St. Monica Academy
Catholic Classical Liberal Arts High School Pilot Program
St. Monica Catholic School, as a ministry and tool of evangelization of St. Monica Catholic Church on Mercer Island, currently provides a Catholic Classical Liberal Arts education for grades PreK-8. In 2020 our school initiated a small, unaccredited high school pilot program to meet the needs of families who desired a Catholic Classical Liberal Arts curriculum that moved beyond the Logic stage (middle school) into the Rhetoric stage (high school).
By continuing to provide Catholic Classical Liberal Arts high school courses, St. Monica is truly filling a unique niche. No other local area school provides a Catholic Classical Liberal arts high school curriculum; thus, we do not anticipate that St. Monica would directly compete with other local Catholic high schools. Instead, we would offer a truly authentic Catholic Classical Liberal Arts experience where small group cohorts of high school students can learn in the Classical Liberal Arts pedagogy and through a Catholic lens in ALL coursework.
