We strive to make the admissions process at MPB as easy and enjoyable as possible. Most families begin the process with a personal tour hosted by either a school administrator or our student tour guides. Prospective students are then invited to spend a day with their future classmates. The day will include STAR screening to gain a sense of the student’s abilities. Applications are accepted throughout the year with registration packets being sent in the spring. We will request the necessary paperwork for our files including transcripts, sacramental records, and medical forms. We look forward to welcoming your family to MPB!

Short Answer: We educate the whole person.

Long Answer:

Why Catholic schools? It is a question we like to hear. Catholic education is more than an academic education. Catholic schools provide education rooted in Christ and the development of the individual. Yes, Catholic schools offer first-rate academics filled with rigorous course-work, problem solving and experiential learning. And, we are more than that.

Catholic schools educate the whole person. Beyond the academics, children grow in faith, community, love, service, and personal values. Catholic schools foster religious and moral development in a world searching for direction and value. Our students are not merely our pupils; they are our hope for a better future. That is why it is essential that each student develops his/her own sense of self. This faith-filled environment instills high degrees of self-respect, self-confidence, and self-discipline among students. In schools, students learn the tools to successfully function in a modern but ever-changing society. The difference is that in Catholic schools, students learn how to use these tools to suit the greater good.

Catholic schools are essential to the health of the Church and our democracy- they nurture the soul of our nation. Alliance for Catholic Education

Catholic schools create the opportunity for future generations to be led by sound-thinking, moral individuals dedicated to Christ and his teachings. Ultimately, Catholic education should prepare students to be good stewards of God’s gifts and active people of faith who serve others, make a difference in the world, and participate in their faith and civic communities. The secular world is torn in so many different directions that wrong and right are beginning to blur. Our nation needs a foundation of justice, peace, and love to stand upon. Catholic schools are the seeds we need to realize this vision. It is your choice to sow them.
