Bishop Chatard is honored as a 2014 School of Excellence
The Catholic Education Honor Roll, part of the Cardinal Newman Society, has recognized Bishop Chatard High School as one of 71 schools nationwide to be designated as a 2014 School of Excellence.
Schools receiving this recognition are 'marked by the integration of Catholic identity throughout all aspects of their programs and excellence in academics.'1
Less than 5 percent of the Catholic high schools in the United States received this designation this year. In Indiana, 2 other schools were honored: St. Joseph H.S. in South Bend and St. Theodore Guerin H.S. in Noblesville.
Deacon Rick Wagner states, "The recognition affirms that we are who we say we are, as evidenced by our focus
on faith formation, the academic rigor we offer, and our attention to the
the whole child.
It is gratifying to have a third party organization
assess us and come to the conclusion that we are true to our mission."
