About Paramus Catholic High School
Paramus Catholic High School offers faith-based coeducational college-preparatory learning grounded in Christ.

It is our belief that students flourish when they are given role models who exhibit the very behaviors we expect; for that reason, we encourage everyone in the PCHS family to model core values of community, compassion, honesty, respect, and responsibility not only in the classroom but in everything they do.

With faith, innovation, critical thinking, and civic duty on board, Paramus Catholic High School students have the best chance at fruitful, balanced lives that contribute to personal well-being as well as the common good.
