LOWELL -- The entire Lowell Catholic High School senior class recently committed their time and energy to service learning in the community across nearly 50 different service sites.
Many students wholeheartedly embraced their experience and have made plans to return to assist the organizations, schools and businesses in the future.
Lowell Catholic juniors enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather at the Toah Nipi retreat center in Rindge, New Hampshire this December. The juniors broke out in to small groups and learned about good decision making skills. Each chaperone lead group discussions regarding the importance of making the right choices in life and discovering pathways to finding joy.
After an intensive self-study process involving the entire school community, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) reaccredited Lowell Catholic with the highest possible marks across all aspects of academics and student life. In particular, NEASC commended Lowell Catholic “for its exemplary commitment to live the mission, thus creating a school community that cultivates a genuine atmosphere of care and respect.” They also commented in their report that, “The tremendous growth in enrollment and the forward-looking proactive approach toward school improvement are a reflection of the commitment to the students, as Lowell Catholic helps them Excel, Prepare, Live.”
