Dear BK Family,

With great joy, we welcome each of you back on campus for Bishop Kenny’s 70th anniversary year.  As we celebrate this milestone, we “Remember Our Vision, Renew Our Mission, and Rejoice in Our Identity.” Our strong BK community continues to thrive on-campus and throughout Jacksonville. While we are celebrating 70 years of tradition, we continue our commitment to growth, leadership, and the future of this campus that so many have called home.

Remember Our Vision
Guided by the lessons of the Gospel, Bishop Kenny graduates will be persons of integrity, capable of making life decisions and positive contributions to their faith, family, and global communities.

Above all else, Bishop Kenny is a Catholic school.  We are anchored in faith, and the gospel values our school was founded on are our true north.

Renew Our Mission
Rooted in Catholic values and traditions, our mission is to partner with parents in the education and formation of their children by providing a culture of faith, a rigorous curriculum, and personal enrichment opportunities through which all students can achieve and excel as they prepare for college and for life.

Community is a cornerstone of our campus.  We rely on the relationships we build with students and their parents as an integral part of academic success at BK and in life beyond Kingman Avenue. As a result, our students learn to succeed in life academically and understand that they are called to live life for others.

Rejoice In Our Identity
Commitment to our Catholic identity fosters and provides direction for the development of the whole person - spiritually, physically, intellectually, morally, socially, and emotionally.

The words on our school crest, Integritas Sapientia (“Integrity of Wisdom”), remind us that as a school community, we are called to model a steadfast value of wisdom from God, not only for our school but for our community at large. We rejoice in this identity and proudly weave it into every fiber of our campus life.

I would like to extend a special welcome to our new BK families and to our Crusader alumni who now join us as parents of students continuing the Crusader tradition. Four years at BK truly are the entry point to a lifetime of being a part of the Crusader family. I look forward to seeing you all throughout this year.

Remember, Renew, Rejoice. 

We are Bishop Kenny.
