Welcome to Fr.Tolton Catholic

Follow not the well worn path.
Go instead where there is no path and blaze a trail.

Fr. Augustine Tolton was a trailblazer. He held tight to his dreams of the priesthood, even when the entire culture surrounding him denied him that opportunity.

He led the way for others to follow.

Fr. Tolton Catholic High School is also a trailblazer. As the first Catholic high school in Columbia, Missouri, Tolton Catholic is the result of years of hard work and dedication on the part of the local Catholic church and the entire Columbia community. Even as the organization and fundraising met with constant challenges, the effort remained true to its cause, and continued until the fulfillment of the dream. Our new school brought that vision to reality when it opened in the fall of 2011 with 9th and 10th grade students. We continued to grow that dream as we expanded to include 11th grade in 2012, and 12th grade in 2013.  We now include all students from 9th through 12th grade in our yearly enrollments.

Students at Fr. Tolton Catholic High School are trailblazers as well, leading the way for others to follow. Spiritually, academically, and athletically, our students are pursuing freedom for excellence in all facets of their high school experience. These students will graduate and go on to be leaders of moral clarity and distinction in tomorrow’s world.
