MTC is committed to academic excellence that prepares students for success in high school, college and beyond. Our rigorous curriculum provides meaningful learning experiences that allow students to be self-directed learners with a growth mindset.
In collaboration with our local Catholic high schools, we offer several events to assist MTC children and parents with the transition process to high school. High school years are an incredible time in a student’s life and most students view this change in a very positive light. The Catholic high schools in the Diocese of St. Petersburg provide the highest quality academics with an average ACT score that puts our students in the top 25 percent in the nation. More importantly, Catholic high schools provide an environment where faith, service, and respect are taught and modeled every day.
