A Message from the Principal

One of the true joys of teaching is getting to know the many students who have graced our doors, and to know them well. Whether you began your journey with us in the High School or were a member of our Elementary School family, we have fond memories throughout the years.

Although I am very young, I have been lucky enough to see the last 37 classes graduate from the current version of HTS. Undoubtedly, the friendships and bonds that you made with classmates, faculty, and our Jesuits have also remained for a lifetime.

We are honored to have been part of your educational, spiritual, and emotional journey – thank you for enriching our lives.
