Bishop Reicher Catholic School

Established in 1954, the mission of Reicher Catholic High School is to educate each student in spirit, mind and body by fostering personal excellence within the Catholic tradition.
Human beings have basic desires: a desire for God, a desire for knowledge of this world, a desire for social, physical, mental well-being and a desire for community.
It is through education (a continuing process of learning, growing and maturing) that one pursues the realization of these desires.
Catholic, co-educational, and comprehensive, RCHS seeks to guide students in the process of learning so that they can make decisions responsibly and with confidence from a spiritual, intellectual, moral, and social foundation.
Ultimately, RCHS seeks to prepare an individual who will always seek the truth, speak it boldly, and will become a creative force for good in society.

Great Pre-K program! We love Mrs. Darling. I receive a weekly newsletter and am in constant contact with his teacher. The Parent's Association provides plenty of opportunities to get involved. My son receives a well-rounded education and the values we have at home are reinforced in an academic setting. 10 out of 10- definitely recommend.

My boys have both been going to bishop Louis reicher catholic school since pre-k4 and we wouldn`t have it any other way. They are always ready to go back to school the next day and enjoy seeing all the staff and kids in the classrooms. Everyone knows everyone and is not just a "face." All the teachers care about every child. Classroom sizes are the perfect size and help them engage better. Overall very pleased with this school. My two have been advised academically over the years and I am grateful for the foundation the school has started for them. Best Catholic School in Waco!
