Some Catholic high schools are single sexed some are not. Usually the ones that are have the most prestige for educational purposes & are also the most expensive. At least that is how it is where I am from. the kids I have known that have gone also generally come from pretty strict homes where they aren't allowed to date, so I suppose it's a bit easier to keep tabs if they aren't with the opposite sex all day.
I went to Catholic school through 8th grade & will tell it it is unequivocally a better education then public schooling by far. I had a class in 6th grade the public school made me take in 11th grade. Same book even. Ridiculous.

Because they want them to be raped by the paedophile priests?
