BMHS students

The story of Holy Cross education began with Blessed Father Moreau and his faithful supporters who believed in the vital importance of Catholic education for all children, regardless of class, race, or personal background. The story of Bishop McNamara High School, founded 51 years ago, started much the same way, with 10 Holy Cross Brothers working into the late hours of the night the evening before the doors opened to ensure that the inaugural class had desks, chairs, and working stations on their first day of class. Such is the story of Holy Cross and such is the story of Bishop McNamara – a School, an educational movement, and a ministry, guided by the Holy Spirit, and supported by a student body, faculty, staff, families, and community willing to dedicate themselves to prepare our young people for, as Fr. Moreau stated, “better times than these.”.

We hope that you will make a financial contribution to Bishop McNamara High School. Your donation helps further the mission of our School and the vision of Father Moreau. It also makes you an integral part of this community that is committed to providing our students every opportunity to succeed here and in life.
