ST JOHN FISHER CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOLFirst and foremost a Catholic School
At St. John Fisher, ensuring spiritual, religious and moral development are key parts of the curriculum. As all knowledge is God given however, the duty to develop students in all curriculum areas is stressed. To prepare our students for adult life, they are offered every opportunity to develop intellectually, socially, culturally and physically. Catholic schools do not exist to take full responsibility for the growth of our young people. Parents are the first educators and the school has the duty to support parents in their task.
