Alumni Image
Our Johnstown Catholic and Bishop McCort alumni can be found all around the world…some far beyond the halls where our current students walk…and even some just around the corner from 25 Osborne St.  Their legacy of pride, loyalty and tradition, as well as excellence in scholarship and education would not be possible without the continuing support and interest shown by so many of our alumni.

We would like to welcome you home to BMCHS any time you would like to visit.  Come tour the school and see the changes that have been made since you were here last.  Share your memories and Crusher traditions with our students. 

BMCHS is about “community.” We invite you, our alumni, to keep us up-to-date with news from your personal and professional lives including accolades received, personal accomplishments and news about births, deaths and other life events. Your former teachers, administrators, classmates and friends want to know what’s been going on in your life!

Please take time to explore the BMCHS Website and Alumni section.  We think you’ll find it informative about the school and your fellow alumni.  With your help, we can keep you and other alumni aware of where former Crusher classmates have been and where they are going.  Don’t hesitate to contact us via if you have news to share or questions about reunions or other events. The Alumni section of the website is for you.
