The Catholic faith permeates everything we do at Frassati Catholic Academy, as our school’s traditions are founded on the traditions and devotions of the Catholic Church. Every day begins with prayer and celebration of our Catholic community in our prayer space in the heart of our campus. All classes are taught through the lens of the Catholic faith, with students often reading foundational Church documents, the Bible, works by the saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Students receive direct instruction in the faith as well as spend time learning in the Atrium through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. Mass is held every Friday morning for the whole school, and classes pray together in our chapel. Monthly adoration and reconciliation services are also held for all classes.
The religious formation of our students is supported by local parish priests, and much formation and teaching about the sacraments happens daily at school. It is important to note, however, that Frassati students will not receive sacramental preparation at school. Catholic students will need to register for sacramental preparation classes at their own home parishes.
Millennial Catholics who attended Catholic schools are seven times more likely to attend weekly Mass than millennial adults who attended public schools (Gray, 2014).
Men who have attended a Catholic secondary school are more than six times as likely to consider a vocation to the priesthood (NRVC, 2013).
Women who have attended a Catholic primary school are three times as likely to consider being a religious sister (NRVC, 2013).
