Founded in 1952, Bishop Kenny High School is a four-year Catholic, college-prep school with a diverse population of 1,235 students. In addition to traditional academic courses, a wide variety of AP, STEM, honors, elective, and fine arts offerings are available to students.
Strategic academic planning and continued investment in technology ensure that Bishop Kenny students graduate with the STEM skills necessary for success in a digital world. The dedicated professional teaching faculty, athletic and coaching staff, and a knowledgeable and experienced team of Guidance Counselors work together to ensure that Bishop Kenny seniors are eligible for acceptance to the college or university of their choice.
Equally important to Bishop Kenny's academic program is the continued faith formation of its students. Helping young people develop a strong faith-life, a moral compass, a social conscience and the desire to provide service to those in need.
Athletics and activities
Athletics and extracurricular activities round out the school day for most students. The Bishop Kenny Crusaders have an enduring reputation for being competitive athletes that demonstrate leadership and good-sportsmanship.
More than half of BK students participate on one or more of the 36 varsity, JV, and freshman athletic teams. Nearly all students participate in one or more of 40 academic and service clubs.
Since 1952 Bishop Kenny students have been trained to lead lives of meaning, purpose, and service. Each year hundreds of legacy families, some three generations strong, make the choice to entrust the continued academic and spiritual preparation of their high school age students to their alma mater, because they know the BK experience lasts a lifetime.
