Dedicated to the teaching mission of the Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Schools are Christ-centered communities focused on faith formation, academic achievement and personal growth.
More than 150 years ago Catholic elementary and high schools were established in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. These schools incorporate the gospel message throughout the school day in classroom as well as during extracurricular activities. The values, attitudes, knowledge and skills acquired in these private schools impact young people for a lifetime.
Edward D. Fenwick, who spearheaded the efforts that led to the creation of the Diocese of Cincinnati in 1821 and served as its first bishop, opened the first school for the rapidly growing diocese in 1824 under the direction of a Sister of Mercy from France and a lay woman. There were 24 pupils. Today, the seed Father Fenwick planted has grown into the eighth largest federation of Catholic schools in the country.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Schools have a leadership dedicated to the success of their schools and their students.
