As a college preparatory high school, Yap Catholic High School offers a comprehensive curriculum that will prepare students for the rigors of higher education.  All of our courses are taught at the honors level, with the exception of our math courses which are divided into regular courses and honor courses. 

The goal of our academic program is to prepare our students today for the world of tomorrow. At the center of our philosophy is the Ignatian tradition of educating the mind and the heart.  As our mission statement claims, we strive to educate young women and men who "live their faith in the service of God and others."
