Western Catholic Educational Association has granted Bishop Manogue a six-year accreditation term with a midterm review.  This is an excellent outcome and shows that the WCEA recognizes that we are offering a high-quality Catholic education.  We’re very proud of our accreditation team, and look forward to continually improving our service and commitment to our students and families.


2012 Graduate Drew McMillan placed third in the Hospitality Management event at the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Awards Program Conference held in San Antonio June 28- July 2. The conference was attended by more than 6,000 top FBLA students from around the nation. Hospitality Management requires mastery of such topics as hotel and resort management, accounting, business law, information technology, customer service, and tourism trends analysis.  Great job, Drew!
