Welcome to the Rapid City Catholic School System. We hope you find the information provided within this website to be of help.

Our mission statement, “Developing Personal and Academic Excellence in the Catholic Tradition,” states the purpose of our school system. With the strong partnership that exists between our Church/parishes, parents, students, faculty, staff, administration and community at large, we see this mission being carried out daily in our schools and in the lives of our graduates, who are prepared for roles of leadership and service in their adult lives. 98% of our graduates have pursued a college education and many have been accepted in some of the most academically demanding institutions in the nation. They take with them the benefits of an education rooted in faith, knowledge, character and service. In short they are equipped to succeed in a changing world.
