Mission Statement and Integral Student Outcomes

Our Mission

Cardinal Newman High School
A Catholic, college preparatory community,
Educating students in the wholeness of body, mind, and soul,
Consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church,
Manifested by faith, leadership and service.

At Cardinal Newman High School, we are committed to providing Catholic education and academic excellence, as envisioned by our namesake, Saint John Henry Newman.  We believe that families play a crucial role in the spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, and social development of our students, and we seek to assist and supplement them in this vital task. 

We encourage our students not only to develop their creative and critical thinking abilities but also to cultivate Christian virtue and a strong sense of social responsibility.

We invite you to be part of a community dedicated to nurturing future leaders who are rooted in the values of love, truth, and service.


Ready for College, Ready for Life

Our focus on outstanding achievement ensures that our students become knowledgeable and skillful in areas of moral and ethical decision-making, critical thinking, accountability, technology and adaptability. Our co-curricular programs enhance the academic and spiritual dimensions of our school by providing influential activities that foster community, leadership, creativity and sportsmanship.

Life requires Faith.

At Cardinal Newman, we believe that Christian virtue is cultivated through the study of Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church and service. Our faith is not just theoretical but is lived out in everyday experiences. These experiences help our students not only understand the value of a faith-centered life, but the respect for diversity in religion and culture. Our community is guided by Christ to give witness through example.
