Safe Environment

SLUH is deeply committed to ensuring the safety, security and well-being of its students, faculty and staff, as well as alumni, parents and guests who participate in the many activities that we sponsor. The school does not tolerate discrimination, sexual abuse, sexual activity, hazing or bullying, whether perpetrated by adults or students.

Providing the safest environment for students to learn and thrive is a top priority. The school conducts regular background checks on employees, and a check-in management system provides immediate background checks on visitors who come to campus during the school day. All employees and non-employed coaches and moderators are required to complete Protecting God’s Children, an education program sponsored by the Archdiocese of St. Louis focused on providing a safe and secure environment. A comprehensive campus security plan punctuates SLUH's commitment to safety and security.

Victims of sexual abuse, in addition to contacting civil authorities, are asked to come forward in order to receive pastoral assistance. Reports of abuse may be made to any Pastor or to:
