School Notes

  • Bishop Canevin High School is a Catholic, diocesan, co-educational, college-preparatory institution committed to serving students of varied abilities and backgrounds.
  • We participate in the total mission of the Catholic Church by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and by creating a Christian environment of men and women in service to others. We foster the spiritual growth of our students by integrating them into a community where Catholic beliefs, values, and morals are professed, taught, and experienced. We strive to form graduates who will be outstanding moral and ethical leaders in the communities in which they live, work and worship.
  • We challenge students to strive for academic excellence, as critical thinkers and effective communicators, while recognizing that each student is a valued individual with unique abilities, insights and needs. We instill in students the appreciation of education as a life-long endeavor.
  • We inspire students to live life responsibly, guided by the precepts of Catholic social teaching and seek to awaken in them an awareness of the injustices in our global society. We challenge them to labor with and for others in building a more just world.
  • We provide an environment where students learn to make responsible choices which demonstrate an awareness, appreciation and respect for the dignity and sanctity of all life, particularly their own. We view our educational mission as a cooperative venture with parents, alumni, local parishes and the broader community.
