Mission Statement

Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School
Mission, Goals & Objectives

Bishop McGuinness High School’s primary mission is to develop students holistically and equip them to live and serve in a complex world in need of peace, love, and justice.   Administrators, faculty, and staff work cooperatively with parents as partners in the education of young adults and in striving to create a welcoming community in which the teachings of Jesus are promoted.  Mindful of our Catholic identity, the school encourages students through academic and co-curricular opportunities to excel personally and academically, build confidence in their faith, and realize their own unique missions in life.
