Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. On behalf of the entire Bishop Kenny community, we are honored you chose our school for your family.  As many of you know, Bishop Kenny is more than a school. We are a community of faith, and as a Catholic high school, our mission is more than just forming scholars. It is to form young men and women who go on to live purpose-filled lives of faith and service to others.

Our school is built on a foundation of faith which provides the framework we need to guide our children thoughtfully, truthfully, and effectively. The world is complex, and the obstacles facing our children appear vast, but this year our school is reminding our community that we are wonderfully made in the image and likeness of God. The beauty and wisdom of God's creation and plan for humanity guide all of us in responding to the conflicting messages in today's world.

As we navigate our way through this new school year together, I am also asking our faculty, parents, and students to reflect on the meaning of legacy. Each day our actions shape our personal and shared legacies. It is my prayer that our school will contribute positively to your legacies, as each of you is a huge piece of our BK legacy.

To the Class of 2027, welcome new Crusaders! To the class of 2024, you are almost there! No matter where you are in your high school journey, I pray you take the next 180 days to learn as much as you can, participate fully in campus life, and, most of all, find refuge in the safe and quiet peace of our school community.

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