About Us

Bishop McNamara High School is a private, Catholic coeducational high school offering its students a challenging college preparatory curriculum and a complete range of athletics and activities. Founded in 1964 as an all male high school, Bishop McNamara remained all male until 1992. In 1991, La Reine High School announced its closing, and Bishop McNamara pledged its future to embrace a coeducational mission of secondary education. 

Sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross this Catholic school seeks the development of the whole person. Thus, the academically rigorous program is combined with athletic, artistic, religious and social activities to offer young men and women a well-rounded pathway to success.

Education is the art of helping young people to completeness.
