Building a Moral Foundation.
At Reitz Memorial, we are dedicated to educating a community of believers, confident about tomorrow. Yet, it is the spirit of our community that makes the difference. We encourage individual achievement within the moral parameters of our motto - More at Memorial. Here, our students develop a life-long love of serving those in need and giving generously of their time and unique gifts. We celebrate our shared values with people of all faiths.
Reitz Memorial High School is proud to have a stunning, on-campus Chapel
Throughout the years, the Chapel has been enhanced and beautified so that today's students can be given a place of great dignity and beauty in which to encounter the Lord in prayer and in the sacraments. Memorial's Chapel is a place of prayer and worship. While Adoration and prayer take place weekly in our chapel, Masses are celebrated in our Auditorium. During all-school Mass, students, faculty and staff gather together.
The mission of our Theology Department is to proclaim the Gospel through the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. After learning the Foundations of Theology and Sacraments as underclassmen, students will learn more about their faith and the faith of others. Upperclassmen, in particular, are able to take classes such as:
Introduction to Scripture
The Christian Life
Old Testament in Depth
Religions of the World
Our Catholic Identity serves as a guiding influence. We will demonstrate Catholic values through services, faith formation, and leadership opportunities. It is our mission to ensure that all graduates hold a moral compass that places God's love, human decency, and goodness above all else.
2022-2025 Strategic Priorities:
Provide inviting, inclusive, and student-centered faith formation for all students.
Empower faculty and staff to support and strengthen the mission of Reitz Memorial High School and carry out their ministry in the Catholic faith.
Help support our students, parents, and alumni to develop lifelong engagement with their faith and parish community.
Service is Integral to a Reitz Memorial Education
At Reitz Memorial, our students are offered a number of opportunities to learn the value of service - whether that be of their time, their talent, or their loyalty. On average, Memorial students serve approximately 6,500 hours per year. They serve on campus, in their local communities, and across the globe. Students may participate in school-wide service days, or through partnerships with local food banks and homeless shelters who have partnerships with our school, or with their local church communities.
All students must fulfill a service requirement in order to graduate and many go above and beyond their required hours.
