From the Principal

Principal Todd Orlando

Dear BK Family,

On June 4, 2022, we closed the 70th year of Bishop Kenny High School. We warmly welcomed our Class of 2022 graduates as alumni, joining nearly 17,000 Crusaders worldwide. They belong to a brother and sisterhood of shared faith and family, history and tradition. They are forever Crusaders.

To our rising seniors, the torch passes to you.  I hope you enjoy a restful summer before assuming the responsibility of leading our student body.  I challenge each of you to make your senior year your best one yet, academically, socially, and in your faith life.  You represent our school, your families, and yourself in everything that you do, and we take great pride in calling you the Class of 2023. 

To our underclassman, we look forward to watching you continue to grow in your faith, succeed academically, and contribute to the many clubs and activities you are part of, as you too build a legacy at BK.  It is only a matter of time until we are celebrating your senior year, so continue to work hard and push towards that milestone. Make the most of your time at Kenny - it passes quickly – and don’t forget to extend a gracious welcome to new students in the fall, as you were in their shoes not long ago.  

To our parents and staff, thank you for your unwavering commitment to your children and our students. The many ways you live and teach our core values enhances our BK community and is one of the greatest strengths of our school.  

As we take time to rest this summer and reflect on this past school year, our work is never finished. We will have many programs and renovations happening on campus this summer, and our work to prepare for the 2022-23 school year is already beginning.  I especially ask you all to join us in prayer for not only for our school community, but for our world. As Catholics, we are called to be countercultural and live lives that are unapologetically oriented to being disciples of Christ.  May everything we do in our homes and on our beloved campus echo that calling.  

Remember. Renew. Rejoice.
