Cardinal Newman Society's 50 Top Catholic High Schools

In September, the winners of the 2012-2013 Catholic High School Honor Roll competition were announced by The Cardinal Newman Society. Since 2004, the Honor Roll has recognized excellence in Catholic identity, academics and civic education at Catholic high schools across the United States.

The top 50 schools are recognized for overall excellence in all three Honor Roll categories, and other schools receive special recognition in particular categories. Here is the list of the top 50 schools.

The Cardinal Newman Center also recognized seven schools were recognized for excellence in Catholic identity, six schools for academics, five schools for civic education, and five additional schools for two of the three categories. Here is the list of the recognized schools.

“Since competition began in 2004, the Honor Roll has been a helpful tool for administrators, families, and benefactors in recognizing the quality of a Catholic high school,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society. “The Honor Roll schools are a reminder that Catholic education is getting better every day—not only academically, but in the renewal of Catholic identity—and we are delighted to see the increased level of competition among the schools that participated in the program this year.”

Congratulations to all of the honored schools from Ave Maria Press.
