2016/17 'A' School
Bishop Chatard earned an 'A' letter grade in Indiana Department of Education's 2016/2017 School Accountability Grades. This is the seventh consecutive year the school has received this designation.
"Indiana's A-F model holds schools and corporations to a higher standard and provides a more accurate picture of their performance by incorporating student academic growth and graduation rates, as well as college and career readiness, as measures of success."
We are a 4-STAR SCHOOL
