Lancaster Catholic High School was recognized as a Catholic Education Honor Roll School by the Cardinal Newman Society on Monday. LCHS was one of just three high schools in Pennsylvania to earn the honor.
“It is great affirmation for Lancaster Catholic to be recognized by the Catholic Education Honor Roll,” Lancaster Catholic’s president Tim Hamer remarked. “This distinction confirms our commitment to the mission of Catholic education. I applaud the leadership, administration, students, parents, teachers, and staff for their hard work in assuring a strong Catholic identity permeates all that we do in preparing our students to be future leaders in both society and the Church.”
Lancaster Catholic engaged in a thorough internal and external review of its comprehensive program offerings before being awarded this status. It has received specific recognition for its strong integration of Catholic identity throughout its efforts, including the integrity of its mission, and the strength of its community and rich spiritual life. The Honor Roll also recognized the school’s efforts at integral formation of the minds, bodies, and spirits of its students as well as its comprehensive academic program which seeks to instill a Christian vision of the world and human wisdom and culture.
The Cardinal Newman Society has recognized over 300 high-performing Catholic high schools nationwide since the program’s inception in 2004. Please click here to read about the Principles of Catholic Identity in Education.
