CMH named among top Catholic Schools in America

Catholic Memorial High School Named one of the top Catholic High Schools in the Nation
Waukesha, WI - Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) announces that it has been named as one of the top Catholic High Schools in the nation for civic education by The Cardinal Newman Society. This award is a result of the 2012-2013 Catholic High School Honor Roll competition. The Honor Roll recognizes excellence in Catholic identity, academics and civic education at Catholic high schools across the United States. 

Of the 1205 Catholic High Schools in the United States, only seventy-three were recognized by the Cardinal Newman Society this year.  CMH is one of only two schools in Wisconsin and the only school in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to be recognized on the Honor Roll.

"It is an honor for Catholic Memorial High School to be recognized by the Catholic High School Honor Roll as one of the top Catholic high schools in the United States for civics education. This is our second recognition in only our second time participating in the process.  This designation recognizes our commitment to the fullness of Catholic education and the specific mission given us in our Catholic Social Teachings. I applaud the students, parents, teachers, and staff for their hard work and commitment to this important mission of the Church,” said Fr. Paul Hartmann, President.
“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.”
