Mission & Vision

McGill-Toolen Catholic High School provides a college preparatory secondary education that enables individuals to grow in faith, to search for knowledge and truth in mind, body, and spirit, and continue building the kingdom of God on earth.  We strive to be the best in the area of academic excellence, the best in the physical development of the body, and the most important, that which is our primary reason for existence, the spiritual development of the soul. By active involvement in the learning process, students are prepared for lives of Christian leadership and service.   We continue to champion Scientia Pro Amore Dei-knowledge for the love of God.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”  Philippians 4:13


Our Catholic faith is at the heart of everything we do at McGill-Toolen.   Emphasis on spiritual growth and moral responsibility contribute to our uniqueness.   We are proud to say we have the best students, the best faculty and the best academic programs, all offered in an environment that celebrates our Catholic faith.   We are the only high school in Mobile that features this incredible combination.


McGill-Toolen Catholic High School, founded as a Catholic diocesan high school, is committed to academic excellence. We believe that educational excellence is achieved through the offering of a rigorous and challenging curriculum taught by competent, enthusiastic, and caring faculty. The curriculum is college preparatory, which takes into account the individual learning styles, interests, and abilities of all students and provides for developing them.


At McGill-Toolen Catholic, you will discover the true meaning of strength in an inclusive community where the dignity of each person is respected so that all can thrive.  We empower students to achieve beyond their expectations and share their gifts with the world in need. 
On a campus that offers more than 80 extracurricular activities from athletics to academic, civic and social clubs, every student is encouraged to get involved.  Extracurricular activities are a way to connect and create. And last but not least, connecting with people is an opportunity to learn how and when to lead, to follow, and to collaborate.
