Tampa Catholic High School is a ministry of the Diocese of St. Petersburg entrusted to dedicated religious and laity.
The young men and women in our care represent the diversity of the communities we serve.
As educators in a Catholic environment, we nurture academic, spiritual, and personal growth while promoting life-long learning and commitment to service and justice.
Inspired by the Gospel and animated by the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers, our mission celebrates the value and dignity of each person.
The ultimate goal of the Tampa Catholic High School community is the development of the whole person with Christ as the model and His Spirit as the source of strength.
Our school exists to carry out the threefold purpose of Catholic education- To teach as Jesus did: teaching the Message of God as revealed in Christ and through His Church; building community through fellowship in the life of the Holy Spirit; and providing opportunities for service to the entire human community - witnessing the Christian way of life.

I am so glad my son is enrolled in Tampa Catholic High School. He absolutely loves going to this school, even though it is a bit far from our home. He talks about how good this school is with his cousins and community friends and is continuously motivated to learn. He loves being in sports, and this school offers the best athletic programs in the area. The academic metrics and standards are high, and I see my child learning new knowledge and thriving every day. Thank you, teachers and coaches, for being awesome and caring towards the development and growth of my teen.
