From the Principal

Principal Todd Orlando

“The days are coming when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah.”

Jeremiah 33:14

Dear BK Family,

As we await the celebration of the birth of our Lord, I extend heartfelt Christmas greetings to each of you. I pray the warmth of the Holy Family's embrace fills your homes and that the light of Christ illuminates them with hope and joy. As we gather with loved ones to exchange gifts and celebrate joyfully, may we most of all express gratitude for the gift of our Savior and fervently pray that the peace of the Nativity extend to all the world. I am wishing you and your families a blessed and restful Christmas.

We continue to be blessed by the support of our parent and alumni communities.  In November, Carla Harris ’80, a well-known Wall Street executive and lifelong singer, coordinated and performed at a sold-out benefit concert at Carnegie Hall in New York.  A portion of the concert proceeds will be directed to the Carla Harris Endowed Scholarship at BK.

Our Legacy of Faith Capital Campaign is moving closer to its public launch in the new year and our volunteer Campaign Cabinet continues to work diligently in preparation. We are currently looking for volunteer team captains to advocate for the campaign to alumni and current and former parents. Teams will begin gathering in mid-January. If you are interested in supporting Bishop Kenny in this important capacity, please contact Advancement Officer Kristin Azzarello Hall ‘99 at

The registration deadline for incoming freshman and transfer applications is January 17, 2024. Re-enrollment for current Bishop Kenny students will open on January 10 and close on February 9.  It is important to get your student re-enrolled promptly to ensure their spot for next year! 

The winter sports season offers many opportunities for parents and alumni to come to campus to support our Crusader teams in action. Basketball, soccer, competitive cheer, and wrestling are all underway with busy schedules. Please come out and support our Crusader athletes.

As we near the end of the first semester, I encourage all students to refresh from academics over their upcoming break so they can come back ready for a strong second half of the school year. We are praying for our seniors as they begin to make college decisions.

As 2023 comes to an end, we thank the Lord for the blessings we have shared, we ask His comfort for the losses we have endured, and we look to the new year with anticipation and excitement for the future of our school. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed 2024.

Tradition. Excellence. Faith.
The Spirit of a Crusader.
