Our school has been a cornerstone of the Morrell Park community for 50 years, and we provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere for our children. A large percentage of our alumni choose CTK for their children, and several of our faculty have attended CTK and are active parishioners.

Our science and computer labs provide a technology-rich environment with state-of-the-art equipment. The 2015 graduating class received more than $125,000 in scholarships to attend archdiocesan and private Catholic high schools.
