Honors for top 50 American Catholic high schools

Catholic World News - September 20, 2012

The Cardinal Newman Society has released its annual “honor roll” listing the top 50 Catholic secondary schools in the US.

The 50 schools, selected on the basis of overall academic excellence and strength of Catholic identity, represent 21 different states, and range in size from one with a student body of 1,489 (Archbishop Edward McCarthy High School in Florida) to two with only 48 (St. Ignatius College Preparatory School and Faustina Academy, both in Texas).

Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, reported that competition for selection on the “honor roll” was tougher than ever, and said that the strength of the 50 schools is evidence that “Catholic education is getting better every day.”
