Mission and Philosophy

The Mission of Bishop Feehan High School encompasses its Mission Statement, Philosophy, and Core Values.
Mission Statement
Bishop Feehan High School is proudly and enthusiastically a Roman Catholic high school. We pursue excellence in Sanctity, Scholarship, and Sportsmanship, represented by our Shamrock. Our school fosters a learning environment, established by the Sisters of Mercy, of faith, compassion, and respect for all. Families and faculty partner to be ministers of the Gospel in both word and action. Bishop Feehan challenges its students to serve their community as disciples of Jesus Christ and to set their hearts "upon things above rather than upon goods of earth” (Col 3:2).

The Feehan education prepares young men and women to lead lives of commitment to the person and message of Jesus Christ and to His church; cultivates an academic community that challenges all of its members to continuous intellectual growth; and encourages students to be an influence for good in their communities. Each individual is endowed by God with unique qualities and is encouraged to discover and develop his/her gifts and talents and to use them in the service of others.
