As we begin our 71st year of service, Bishop Kenny celebrates what it means to profess the spirit of a Crusader. Bishop Kenny`s 55-acre riverfront campus was founded in 1952 on gospel values. While the campus has seen many changes over the years, the BK experience of excellent academics, a tradition of Christian service opportunities, and the availability of mass, prayer, and religious education remains steadfast. We continue to be proudly anchored in Catholic faith and allow that to inform all aspects of campus life.
Rooted in Catholic values and traditions, our mission is to partner with parents in the education and formation of their children by providing a culture of faith, a rigorous curriculum, and personal enrichment opportunities through which all students can achieve and excel as they prepare for college and life.
Guided by the lessons of the Gospel, Bishop Kenny graduates will be persons of integrity capable of making life-decisions and positive contributions to their faith, family, and global communities.

School Notes

  • As we begin our 71st year of service, Bishop Kenny celebrates what it means to profess the spirit of a Crusader.  Crusaders are persons of integrity, capable of making life decisions and positive contributions to their faith, family, and global communities. They are honorable in conduct, honest in word and deed, and dutiful in study and service.  Our students and community of 17,000 Crusader alumni carry this spirit out into the world as dedicated family members, successful professionals, public servants, religious, and clergy.  While their stories and accomplishments are vast, their time on our beautiful campus began their lifetime journey as a part of the Crusader family.
  • The spirit of a Crusader is scholarly.  Our academic programs include both practical and performing arts, 24 AP courses, including the AP Capstone Diploma Program, and various STEM courses and activities that include robotics, Esports, and NJROTC. The more than 120 dedicated faculty and staff members guide our students to hone the social, emotional, and academic skills necessary to meet the demands of college study and ultimately thrive in their chosen careers or vocations.  BK students learn how to discern, take risks, fail humbly, persist, and succeed. During their years as Crusaders, they deepen their theological understanding of our faith, are enlisted as environmental stewards, and learn the importance of civil discussion and academic discourse.  With 50 different clubs and student organizations to participate in, more than 80% of students at BK are members of one or more organization and more than 50% of Crusaders compete on one of our 23 athletics teams.  The spirit of a Crusader is family. This year`s students will be part of a unique family like so many before them.  We will celebrate their chapter in our tradition, as we also look ambitiously to the future and challenge ourselves to continue to grow, lead, and serve students and their families in this place that so many have called home.
