Pastor's Message

Dear Tolton Families,

Welcome to Augustus Tolton Catholic Academy! The prophet Isaiah "I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert" (43:19). God is doing something new and amazing with the beginning of Tolton Academy! We are so excited that you have chosen to be a part of this historic moment.

Every student of Tolton Academy is called to be a scholar and a saint. Our students will be challenged and supported to excel in academics. Our scholars will be formed as disciples of Jesus Christ and encouraged to root their lives in God. A saint is someone who desires a relationship with God and then surrenders to God's plan for his/her life-our scholars will come to see that God has a plan for their lives. We are excited that our academic and spiritual focus at Tolton Academy is to form scholars and saints who will be leaders in our world!

Thank you for being an integral part of the Tolton Academy family! We know you had many options in choosing your child(ren)'s academic home, so we are grateful you chose Tolton Academy.

In Christ,
Fr. Matthew O'Donnell, Pastor
