Mission 

It is the mission of Kennedy Catholic to cultivate a diverse community of learners who encounter Christ, pursue excellence, and lead with love.

To live without faith, without a heritage to defend, without battling constantly for truth, is not to live but to get along; we must never just get along.
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

Kennedy Catholic High School is a four-year Archdiocesan co-ed Catholic high school open to students of all backgrounds and faiths. We are focused on the goal of adapting to each student's particular capacities, needs, interests, and passions and to support them to reach their fullest potential.

Students at Kennedy Catholic reap the multiple educational benefits of our diversity and we are committed to sustaining a racially, ethnically and socio-economically integrated school.

At Kennedy Catholic, we believe 21st-century skills, including the core competencies of collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving, are necessary to ensure students can succeed in the world today. Our vision of diversity ensures success for all students and is only achievable in an environment that fully supports engagement with diverse cultures and perspectives.

Through a rich fusion of cultural exchange, a broad scope of teaching and learning styles, and a commitment to a robust academic program, transformative education takes place. In the Lancer community, excellence and diversity are intertwined.

Philosophy

We believe...  
in the Lancer Family, including staff, teachers, parents, alumni, community groups, and agencies, which forms collaborative, networking relationships that are student-centered and focused on providing the necessary support for success.

We believe...
our teachers are caring and qualified professionals committed to working collaboratively to maximize student potential by upholding rigorous standards and incorporating best practices.

We believe...
that education is a gradual process of acquiring knowledge, faith, skills, and character while implanting a will and curiosity for learning. This is accomplished by addressing the unique abilities of all students in a college preparatory environment so they can continue to learn and live in a global society.

We believe...
that parents of our students reflect and model Catholic Christian values. They are involved, supportive, and committed to creating a school that is accessible to all.

We believe...
our students form a diverse, respectful, and active school community. They demonstrate leadership through their work ethic, service, school spirit, and commitment to spiritual growth.

We believe...
as an Archdiocesan Catholic High School, we anchor ourselves to the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching. We fulfill the mission of the Church with its accessibility, inspiring a call to live as Jesus lived.
