Catholic Identity

As a Catholic, coeducational high school, Father Lopez follows the strong tradition of the Catholic school system in America. We believe in educating the mind, body and soul of every student. We challenge them to use the gifts with which they have been blessed to the best of their ability. This takes place in the midst of a community that is based on the virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love.


Spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ and creating missionary disciples is at the core of our mission. All students attending Father Lopez will learn the tenets of the Catholic faith and Scripture in their Theology classes; experience the prayer life and liturgy of the Church at our communal celebrations; and, be given the opportunity to live the love of their neighbor in many service projects. This is done in an atmosphere of understanding and respect for the diversity of our student body and our world. We strive to live the Gospel message by welcoming all in kindness; serving every person with humility and love; and attempting to change the world into a place of peace and justice for all.


At Father Lopez Catholic High School, we provide our students the opportunities and environment they need to grow in faith and to live out the universal call to holiness. Every student is invited and encouraged to engage fully in all areas of ministry on our campus regardless of their faith background. 


“True holiness does not mean a flight from the world; rather, it lies in the effort to incarnate the Gospel in everyday life, in the family, at school, and at work, and in social and political involvement.” –St. Pope John Paul II
