Bishop Kenny High School is a four-year Catholic, college-prep high school with a diverse population of 1,200 students. In addition to traditional academic courses, a wide variety of AP, STEM, honors, elective and fine arts offerings are available.
Strategic academic planning and continued investment in technology ensure that Bishop Kenny students graduate with the STEM skills necessary for success in a digital world. A dedicated team of teachers, coaches, and counselors work together to ensure that Bishop Kenny seniors are eligible for acceptance to the college or university of their choice.
The safety and security of students is our primary responsibility. In addition to the daily presence of an off-duty JSO officer and policy of limiting perimeter access to campus during the school day, a monitored system of 109 surveillance cameras and regularly scheduled drills for weather and other emergencies is in place.
Equally important to Bishop Kenny’s academic program is the continued faith formation of its students. Helping young people develop a strong faith-life, a moral compass, a social conscience, and the desire to live lives that include service to those in need — all are foundational to the Bishop Kenny experience.
Athletics and activities
Athletics and extra-curricular activities round out the school day for most students. The Bishop Kenny Crusaders have a reputation for being competitive athletes that demonstrate leadership and good-sportsmanship. More than half of Bishop Kenny students participate on one or more of 36 varsity, JV and freshman athletic teams. Nearly all students participate in at least one of 40 academic or service clubs.
Since 1952 Bishop Kenny students have been trained to lead lives of meaning, purpose and service. Each year hundreds of legacy families make Bishop Kenny their choice because they know the experience lasts a lifetime.
