Without a doubt the BEST high school to send your children to in Lancaster county!!! A tenured and dedicated staff, a Catholic/Christian environment-including daily prayers, an outstanding curriculum, loyal alumni & fans, terrific athletics for boys & girls, truly an education for a lifetime!

Lancaster Catholic is an investment that will continue to give back over the years. My husband & I are both graduates of the school & our son now attends LCHS. He came to the school w/ low on self-esteem and struggeling w/ some learning delays. Thanks to a patient and caring staff as well as a great experience with the marching band, he feels better about himself and is working hard to bring up his grades. He has started to talk about future goals. It is really an encouraging family environment. I can't thank LCHS enough for the difference it has made in our lives!

This is truly an expense worth making. My daughters have received a wonderful education at LCHS. They are prepared to further their education. I know they will look back on their years at LCHS with very fond memories. A special thanks to the LCHS Marching Band and Color Guard for the tremendous experience they had. Proud Parent

14 years of a catholic education-where did the years go.. I would do it over again in a heart beat, the education and guidance my son recieved at lchs is second to none. the teachers, friends, and extracurricular activities he participated in will forever be with him. 94% of his class 08' is off to further their education in college-now my son will spending the next 4 years at Temple University-thanks Lancaster Catholic for an exceptional education, and a job well done.. parent

Lancaster Catholic High School fosters true learning and self exploration by offering many opportunities. The atmosphere feels like a college campus. The students respect each other and their teachers. They are challenged and held accountable for their studies and their actions. The comradary is such that you would envy were you an outsider looking in. I know there are days when my son really could use a break from wearing his LCHS tie, but what it has done for him is surround him with kids from families that care enough about their childs education to have made the same sacrifices that we have made. So I drive a 10 year old Suburban, that investment depreciated years ago. My son's returns on our investment have yet to begin.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
