Mission Statement

Bishop McCort High School as a Catholic secondary school, is committed to facilitating the development of each person’s spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, and physical self through prayer, challenging curriculum, service projects, clubs, sports, and example in order to become responsible, productive adults who will challenge the world to live the Gospel message.
Bishop McCort High School is a secondary Catholic college preparatory community of learning.  The Catholic identity of McCort depends upon, and is nurtured by, the continuing presence of a predominant number of Catholic faculty and staff.  This ideal has been consistently maintained by McCort’s leadership throughout its history.  What McCort asks of all its employees and students, however, is not a particular creed or affiliation, but a respect for the objectives of McCort and a willingness to enter into the conversation that gives it life and character.
McCort prides itself on being an environment of teaching and learning that fosters the development in its students of those disciplined habits of mind, body, and spirit that characterize educated, skilled, and free human beings.  In addition, McCort seeks to cultivate in its students not only an appreciation for the great achievements of human beings but also a disciplined sensibility to the poverty, injustice, and oppression that burden the lives of so many.
The philosophy of Bishop McCort High School, based on the traditions and teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, acknowledges that students, administration, faculty, and staff are active witnesses in a Christian-centered community in partnership with parents, alumni and parish families.
Students are a diverse group of unique individuals with inherent personal, intellectual, and spiritual value who have the ability to learn and achieve.
The administration, faculty, and staff facilitate the students’ overall education and development in a nurturing environment conducive to the learning process.  As a community, Bishop McCort High School encourages innovation, collaboration and self-improvement through leadership, support and guidance.
Our challenging curriculum and Christian service requirements integrate a relevant education in a religious atmosphere and develop character, moral responsibility and self-discipline within the individual.  Learning takes place in a safe, calm, well-maintained facility where ownership and pride are fostered.
With confidence, students enter the future aware of moral, technological and societal issues and are equipped with skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of the world.
Bishop McCort Catholic High School, Inc. admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, sex, age, or disability, in the administration of its educational policies, admission polices, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
