Yap Catholic High School

About Yap Catholic High School

Yap Catholic High School is a rigorous college preparatory school (grades 9-12) which serves young men and women from the state of Yap in the Federated States of Micronesia. YCHS opened its doors in September of 2011 with 35 students and today serves 88 students. Small, safe, and faith-based, YCHS seeks to develop the minds, hearts, souls, and characters of students in their pursuit of becoming women and men for others. Our goal is to help students develop their God-given gifts so that they can use them in the service of others. We are located on a newly-developed, twenty-two acre rural campus in the village of Lamer, Rull on the island of Yap.

“I love the environment. I enjoy how the students respect their teachers even if I was just a college student. Respect is a huge deal in that country. I experience a lot of on-going conversation about how to prepare for college in general. The students were very interested to learn more about my college experience so far.”
