Living the Faith

Living the Faith Boylan Catholic High School is a Christ-centered faith community which exists as a response to the mandate of Jesus: "Go and teach all nations."

Our purpose is to stimulate and guide students in their spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional, social, and physical development through the acquisition and use of knowledge in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Through service and scholarship, students prepare for the day when they will take their place in the local, national, and international communities as competent and compassionate adults.

Our faculty and staff embrace and live out Christian values, fostering the spiritual growth of our students through:
