At Catholic Memorial High School, we educate students as individuals, intellectually and spiritually. We guide students to work to their highest, God-given potential. We prepare them for post-secondary education and to become leaders who serve the Church and the world.
History - Faith and Service
Catholic Memorial High School was founded by the determined parishioners of St. Joseph Parish who, in the early 1920's, began raising funds for a future high school. Their goal of providing a high quality Catholic education for the area's youth remained strong and unwavering and their hope became a reality in 1949 when CMH opened its doors. Today, Catholic Memorial High School stands as a living memorial to the 23 young men of St. Joseph Parish who gave their lives for their country in World War II.
Later, the dedication of the school was extended to include all graduates of Catholic Memorial High School who have died in service to their country.
How Catholic Memorial High School Students Rise Through Faith
Catholic Memorial High School inspires young people to learn and grow in their faith.
Catholic Memorial High School believes that if you guide students with love, teach them how to work for what they believe in, and coach them on how to live an ethical life, they will have the strength and confidence to do what's right. And what's right for them is often what's right for the world.
