As we begin the second semester of the 2017-2018 school year, an important change is coming that will reinforce student academic standards at Kennedy Catholic High School. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, Kennedy Catholic will increase the academic requirements needed for participation in interscholastic activities and athletics.
This change will emphasize the importance of succeeding in the classroom first and foremost, but will also better prepare our student-athletes for a smooth transition into college and university through the NCAA and NAIA eligibility process.
Please read this letter from our administrators for details about this change.
Kennedy Catholic will hold SAT prep classes during the month of April 2018. The course is open to all current juniors and seniors. Find more details here!

Lancer Cup points will be awarded to the class who donates the most new underwear!
