Rooted in Faith, Leadership, & Service since 1964
Cardinal Newman High School is a private Catholic, college preparatory community in Santa Rosa, California. Every day, we live our mission: to educate students in the wholeness of body, mind, and soul, consistent with the teaching of the Catholic Church, manifested by faith, leadership, and service.
“The Newman tradition is not merely about the events and rituals. It is about the values and principles that lie at the core of our high school experience. To educate the mind, body, and soul. The unwavering commitment to knowledge and the dedication to growth, with an emphasis on respect, integrity, and fellowship. All of these ideals have been nurtured within these walls, passed down from one generation to the next.”

Throughout my years at Cardinal Newman, I’ve realized how lucky I am. Not only am I thankful for the teachers and staff, but also the positive and spirited community. I enjoy the energy and kindness that everyone brings.
