Achievement Awards

Achievement Award logo
Bishop Chatard High School presents its Achievement Award at the school’s Annual Fund Dinner to honor faculty, alumni, community members and volunteers who epitomize the Catholic mission and values lived out daily at the Archdiocese of Indianapolis North Deanery High School. Presented annually since 1994, the Achievement Award is Bishop Chatard’s highest non-academic honor. It recognizes the important role the extended community plays in educating, nurturing and forming today’s students — tomorrow’s leaders.
