Founded in 1965, Paramus Catholic High School is a co-educational college-preparatory school with a faith-centered mission. The school, which has over 1,100 students, is focused on spiritual growth, academic excellence and social responsibility.
“Parents and students love the dedication and accessibility of our staff,” says Scott Langan, Vice Principal of Student Activities and Director of Athletics. “From the Principal and the administration to the teachers and support staff, everyone at Paramus Catholic goes above and beyond for the benefit of our families.”
Langan, who’s also an alum of the school, says the staff was well prepared for remote learning during coronavirus, even having done a trial run the day before the school was officially closed. “This gave our teachers and students an advantage and they were prepared from day one,” he says.
Looking forward, Paramus Catholic is placing an emphasis on student wellness. “We have put programs in place to help the students maintain a balance between academic lives and their personal lives,” says Langan. “One of these programs is the mentor program which is led by our Deans of Student Life. Each new student is assigned a mentor from our student ambassador program to help guide them into their new school.”
Langan says that the decision to send your student to a Catholic school is one he still sees families making. “Remote learning and COVID-19 guidelines have not affected the number of families choosing to send their children to Paramus Catholic,” he says. “Whether it is in a classroom or at the kitchen table, parents know we are providing a quality education, so they see it as an easy choice to make.”
