Principal's Message
Welcome to the Bishop Macdonell Catholic High School website!
 
It is our hope that this site will provide our students, parents, and community with a useful tool for staying connected with the school and facilitating good communication. If you are new to the Bishop Mac community, it is our hope this site will help you see that Bishop Mac is committed to providing students with an educational experience that will develop every aspect of their being to their fullest potential. We believe that God has called us to address the whole person through a program of strong academics, varied co-curricular activities, and intentional spiritual nurturing. This is the kind of education that can change you—and then change the world through you.
 
Bishop Macdonell gives dignity to all Four Career Pathways, whether students go directly to work, transition to college, or choose university as their pathway to work, our graduates are well prepared. We value the opportunity to nurture our students by providing spiritual development in all aspects of our school life, with our reference being the Catholic Graduate Expectations:

We seek to recognize and to develop the strengths and gifts of our students in a Christ Centered Community focused on God’s highest purpose for their hearts, their souls, and their minds.
 
When students come to Bishop Macdonell Catholic High School, they benefit from the spiritual, academic, and co-curricular activities. It is our deepest hope and prayer that this Christ Centered learning environment will become a place where you can be called closer to your faith and, in turn, draw your world closer to Christ.
