ATTENTION CURRENT 7TH GRADE STUDENTS: We will be offering a summer session of the High School Placement Test Prep Course from Monday, June 12 through Tuesday, June 20. This course runs from 8:00 am -10:00 am and covers 12 hours of high school placement test strategies and a practice test. By taking the course in the summer, students have the advantage of using this information to study at a relaxed pace without classes, homework or other school activities competing for their time. As a bonus, summer students may attend the fall class at no charge. Tuition Fee is $225.00. Registration form is attached.

The Mission of St. Hugo of the Hills School is to provide students with an educational experience in which the teachings of the Catholic faith are instilled, nurtured, and demonstrated. These teachings constitute an integral part of the school’s academic program and the St. Hugo community. Strengthened by the values inherent in these teachings, students and staff are challenge to live with the conviction that, as followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.
