Welcome and thank you for your interest in Bishop McCort Catholic High School!
Bishop McCort High School was founded by the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown in 1922. Throughout our history McCort has been a destination for thousands of students and families that seek a complete education in mind, body and spirit. At McCort the definition of success takes many forms: academic, athletic, social, individual and communal. Academic success includes outstanding SAT and AP test scores, but it also involves effective writing, skillful argument and solid presentation of ideas.
We offer many extracurricular activities and sports programs that allow our students to develop cooperative and leadership skills necessary to be successful beyond high school. Our success in competition is noted repeatedly in the local media, which can lead to great academic options at the collegiate level. McCort students are involved in service work throughout the year. Each service project teaches our students the importance of serving and giving freely to others.
McCort graduates are expected to become the Christian leaders of tomorrow. A challenging college-preparatory curriculum, required service projects, and a faith-filled learning environment prepare our students for life beyond these walls.
