A Message from the Vice Principal of Academics
Bishop Feehan High School is a Catholic, regional, coeducational, college preparatory school that encourages its students to “Set your hearts on things above and not on goods of Earth” (Colossians 3:1) through its spiritual, intellectual, athletic, and extracurricular programs. The students, faculty, and staff encourage one another to live the three aspects of the Shamrock: Sanctity, Scholarship, and Sportsmanship, in all they do.
Bishop Feehan High School challenges and encourages its students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to continue on to higher education, to prepare to become responsible members of the global community, and to participate in sports, school activities, and community service -- all the while growing in faith. The curriculum has been carefully designed to inspire, challenge, direct, and encourage within the context of a caring Christian community.
The academic program consists of core courses required by all and a variety of electives from which students may choose, based upon their individual talents, interests, and goals. Students are required to earn 25.5 academic credits during their four years at Feehan by successfully completing courses in Theology, English, Science, Mathematics, World Languages, Social Studies, Health & Fitness, and the Arts. Bishop Feehan provides a number of academic enrichment opportunities for the students to showcase and further develop their academic talents. The success of Bishop Feehan’s academic program can be measured in a 100% college acceptance rate and a 98% matriculation rate to a four-year college program, as well as our student body receiving consistent recognition as National Merit Commended Students, Semi-finalists and Finalists, and AP Scholars.
I consider it a privilege to work side-by-side with our dedicated faculty and staff who see their students as their number one priority. The attitude that the students always come first stems from a sense of caring and compassion, and a desire to see all students achieve their potential. The phrase “ministers of the Gospel by all they say and do” epitomizes the Bishop Feehan faculty and staff who view what they do every day not as a job, but a vocation.
