Providing College-Preparatory Education for 7th-12th Grades
Education That Works® is a corporate internship program that is fully integrated into the curriculum at Memphis Catholic High School. Through the Education That Works® program, our students’ educations are extended beyond classroom teaching to include real-world, corporate internship assignments, which provide a unique opportunity for our students to be exposed to the work environment that they will enter after college.
By partnering with local business and not-for-profit organizations, the Education That Works® program is changing the face of education in Memphis.
The Memphis Catholic “Education That Works Out” 5K Run/Walk and Spring festival will be a day filled with music, games, food, and drinks. Proceeds will benefit the school whose corporate internship program, “Education That Works”, assist urban-centered students in being able to afford a Catholic education and provide them with real world experiences to help them make a connection between their education and future opportunities.
Since its founding in 1922, Memphis Catholic has firmly believed that the most exhilarating environment for learning includes not only discipline and challenge, but also a loving and supportive faculty, intent on cultivating knowledge and conscientious advancement of the students. Educating our students well is at the core of our efforts.
Memphis Catholic strives to impart knowledge and build self-confidence in an environment conducive to the betterment of self and the deepening of civic duty. We nurture the development of spiritual identity and Christian discipleship through service to God and others, and prepare our students for success by providing Education That Works.
As the school continues to serve the young people of Memphis today, we are very aware of the great traditions which have come before. Our hope is that this site can be a source of happy memories and, hopefully, help facilitate re-engaging you and your classmates in the critical work of the preparing the next generation for the future.
