     Yuma Catholic High School Plan for Reopening

    YCHS  Parent and Students:


    YCHS will be shutting down on campus classes and all after school activities including sports immediately, following the recommendation of the Governor and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.  The Governor has issued a press release requiring all schools to shut down beginning March 16 through March 27.  YCHS will be complying with this order and will extend our shut down of on campus classes through April 3rd.  March 30th through April 3rd will be considered spring break.  We will continue to remain in contact with state and local government officials to make the most educated decisions possible through this trying time.  Administration and Faculty will be accessible via phone and email as we will be on campus Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in order to make sure our transition to google classroom is a successful one.  If a student needs to get onto campus to get anything, they will be allowed to do so from 8-3 on Monday.  After that, they will not be allowed on campus.    


    YCHS will continue with the regular school calendar via google classroom.    Home studies via google classroom will allow for our students to get credit for the mandated amount of school days set forth by the state and ensure that we do not have to extend the school year.   As decisions are made, you will be promptly notified.  In the meantime please stress the importance of good personal hygiene to your children during this time.  Please keep all those infected with COVID-19 in your prayers as well as our school community in general.  Thank you and God bless.

  • Spanish Club Giving Back at Christmas!




    Yuma Catholic Student’s Spirit of Giving Continues!

    The Yuma Catholic High School campus and community promotes a commitment to give back and make our world better both locally and globally.  

    The Yuma Catholic High School Spanish Club wants to improve the lives of children across the border.  They chose to support the youth at the Bethel Orphanage in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico by donating clothing and toys.
    The Spanish Club students raised funds by selling snacks at sporting events and seeking donations.  They raised funds and turned that into warm coats, shoes, pants and toys!  The Spanish Club Faculty Advisor, Mr. David Duran noted, “In addition to teaching any subject in school I think it is vital to teach students how to be people of faith.  I truly believe that the mission for any person or social club is to give, not to receive.”  I needed clothes and you clothed me.  I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me – Matthew 25:36
    The Club President, Natalia Nunez said this about the project, “The Spanish Club felt that the children in the orphanage were in the most need.  The students at Yuma Catholic have nurturing and supportive parents and are so blessed by our families.  We wanted to demonstrate to the children at the orphanage that we care like our YC families.”
    Principal Rhett Stallworth said, “I am very proud of our YC students.  They continue to work diligently to give back to the community that has served them so well over the years.  It is heartwarming to watch them grow and mature into young adults that are working very hard to become the next generation of community leaders."
    It has been a successful first half of the school year for YC campus student philanthropy.  The students supported the Yuma Community Food Bank by donating funds and over 6,000lbs of food for the KECY Food Bowl High School challenge and took home the trophy.  They are supporting the U.S. Marine Corps efforts in Toys for Tots.  Over $600 was raised at the Rachel Determan Memorial Rib Cook Off and toys are being donated on campus as well. 
    Yuma Catholic High School has 374 students, small class sizes, a 100% college acceptance rate, a strong scholar athlete program, religious education, dual and concurrent enrollment classes that count towards college credit from Arizona Western College and the University of Arizona.  The faculty and staff at Yuma Catholic maintain a learning environment that fosters the development of morally responsible leaders who volunteer to serve many local organizations.  Those who are interested in becoming part of the Yuma Catholic community or want to learn more about our campus and curriculum are welcome to call 317-7902 to schedule a tour or visit our new website at

    Yuma Catholic Students Make a Difference

    Yuma Catholic High School promotes a commitment to serve and make our community better.   At one of our Friday spirit celebrations, the Engineering 102 Course decided to not just perform the YC Fight Song, but to also raise money for the Yuma Community Food Bank.

    Major Philip R. Nash, USMC (Retired) led his class in a rousing rendition at the end of Prayer.  The students paid homage to their teacher’s favorite mode of dress by all wearing Hawaiian shirts just like Mr. Nash does every day!
    While they did not win the weekly competition, they were all winners by raising $500 for the Yuma Community Food Bank.  Ms. Shara Merten, Director of the Yuma Community Food Bank, attended class with the Engineering students on Friday morning to accept the check and to chat with the students on their service. 
    The video of the class performing the fight song can be found at this link:
