Catholic Schools Outperform

Data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) was recently released and we are proud to share that Catholic schools came out on top. When compared to their public school counterparts across the nation, Catholic school students’ average scores remained 15 points higher than the average scores of their 8th grade peers. Although the data looked at standardized testing for grades 4 through 8, it has implications for Catholic secondary education as well.

Student Personal Devices

This is a reminder that students may not use their personal laptops/Chromebooks in the classroom. Students are expected to bring their Chromebook to school daily, and use the device for all class-related activities. If your student is experiencing issues with her school-issued Chromebook, please have her reach out to the Tech Department.


New Calendar and Daily Schedules

On Monday, October 10, we launched our new calendar.  It integrates directly with our website to ensure you have the most up-to-date information at your fingertips.

If you would prefer to have the SFHS calendar feed your personal calendar (Google, Outlook, Mac), we have instructions on how to do that.  

Early and immediate feedback has been “like the look, but where’s the daily schedule?”  Now, you have two options:


Website Calendar Improvements

We are in the process of improving our website calendar experience to ensure you know what’s happening on campus, whether it’s the daily schedule or a special event. The new, more robust calendar will launch on Monday, October 10, however the current Google calendar will still be available to you as we make this transition.

Our goal is to always keep you informed and make information easily accessible. Please continue to monitor your emails and future newsletters for more calendar updates.

Important Information Regarding Holy Bowl

Dear Families:

Sacramento’s family of Catholic high schools is thrilled to be back welcoming our entire community for the 51st Holy Bowl this Saturday, September 10, 2022, at Hughes Stadium. This annual event is a fine tradition of good-spirited rivalry and is a chance for us to showcase our athletic accomplishments and enormous school spirit and pride. Students who attended years of grammar school together have an opportunity to catch up and socialize, and this is an opportunity to promote Catholic education to the broader Sacramento community.
