St. Charles Catholic Congratulates Students of the Year, One Named Archdiocesan Nominee

St. Charles Catholic High School has always honored the excellence of their students by nominating the most outstanding Comets for recognition as Students of the Year.  After a series of interviews, essays, and portfolios, SCC is proud to announce Hartley Faucheux, 8th grade, and Dominic Joseph, 12th grade, as their Students of the Year.

In addition to their nominations as SCC’s representatives, 8th grader Hartley Faucheux was nominated to represent the Archdiocese of New Orleans and continue to compete at the state level for the Student of the Year title. Announcements for this level of achievement are expected in early March.

As the various nomination committees learned by reviewing their portfolios, these two Comets are truly outstanding, with both exemplifying leadership, service, scholarship, and spiritual growth—the pillars of Catholic education and of St. Charles Catholic’s mission statement.

Hartley, SCC’s eighth grade student of the year, is the daughter of Leslie and Steven Faucheux of LaPlace Hartley Faucheux was previously nominated as the Student of the Year as a 5th grader at St. Joan of Arc Elementary School where she graduated as the Valedictorian in 2020.  While there, she served as the Beta Club President and as the Student Council Secretary. Since becoming a Comet, Faucheux has become a State and Metro qualifier for the swim team, joined the volleyball team, student council, and Stagehands drama club, and made the honor roll.  She’s also remained very active in the community, performing with the River Parish Community Theatre and reading as a lector at her church parish, St. Joan of Arc. She seeks spiritual growth through SJA’s Youth Group, The Ascent, and through SCC’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  She also seeks to share her faith with others via a special YouTube Channel that chronicles her discoveries of the spiritual life.

Dominic is the son of Todd and Cherie Joseph of LaPlace.  Dominic Joseph attended Ascension of Our Lord Elementary School before attending SCC where he currently serves as Student Body President and Secretary of the Stagehands drama club.  He’s also served as the Junior Class President, Sophomore Class President, and Freshmen representative on the Student Council.  Joseph participates in many extracurriculars at SCC, including the Beta Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, French Club, and SCC Student Ambassadors.  He’s also an accomplished athlete and performer, qualifying for the State swim meet multiple years and earning featured roles in High School Musical and The Addams Family.  Joseph’s academic achievements abound, including his State Qualifications in the South Central Louisiana Literary Rally for English, his many Honor Roll appearances, and most recently, his appointment to SCC’s 30+ Club for students who earn a composite score of 30 or higher on the ACT. Joseph earned a 30 composite!

Dominic consistently goes above and beyond in every venture and has maintained a 4.0 in the most rigorous curriculum SCC offers. St. Charles is proud to have such a determined and well-rounded student represent them.

SCC takes pride in their students and loves to celebrate their achievements.  It’s an honor and a privilege to educate the leaders of tomorrow in the halls of SCC.  To learn more about SCC or to set up a private tour of the school, please call the Director of Admissions and Alumni, Carly Flynn, at 504-487-7881 or email at
