At Bishop Connolly High School, we believe that a mission-driven, standards-based curriculum, rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ, facilitates academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social growth among students; ongoing professional development in the spiritual, academic and pedagogical domains cultivate a more skilled and nurturing faculty; all students can come to know and have a personal experience with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church; all students can learn provided they are given the appropriate contextual support.

Students learn best in an environment that is safe, secure and accountable; Catholic, holistic approach to education facilitates the development of life-long learners who become leaders in the secular world; and families are a vital component of the school community.
