Catholic Memorial High School nationally recognized as a School of Excellence
The Cardinal Newman Society, a national organization devoted to promoting and defending Catholic education, announced today that Catholic Memorial High School of Waukesha, WI (CMH), has been named to the 2014 National Catholic Education Honor Roll as a School of Excellence. Nationally only seventy out of the nearly twelve hundred Catholic high schools were named to this year’s honor roll. This is the third consecutive Honor Roll on which CMH has been recognized.
The recognizes high schools that exhibit faithful Catholic education through institutional identity, administration, academics, and student life. According to the Cardinal Newman Society all members of the Honor Roll embrace, support, and pledge to work toward achieving three distinct "Indicators of a School of Excellence." Among these indicators are a commitment to Catholic teachings and lived faith; faculty, staff and volunteers exhibit that faith and Catholic identity; and the school’s policies and programs ensure the strength and stability of the Church’s educational mission in a changing world.
In its press release, Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society said “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 education. 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.”
Catholic Memorial High School is the only school of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee on the honor roll. According to CMH President, Fr. Paul Hartmann, “A recognition like this not only stands beside CMH’s unmatched academics and our stellar extracurricular offerings, but it also shows how lived faith underlies all of the successes a CMH student can attain.”
At Catholic Memorial High School, we educate students as individuals, intellectually and spiritually. We guide students to work to their God-given potential. We prepare them for postsecondary education and to become leaders who serve the Church and world.
