Mission & Pillars

Our Mission

Transforming lives through the teachings of Jesus Christ within the Catholic tradition.

Offering excellence in Catholic education, Bishop Hartley is founded on the principle of educating the entire person: body, mind, and spirit. We have six belief statements, based upon the six pillars of our foundation: FAITH, PREPARATION, COMMUNITY, SERVICE, SPIRIT, and LEADERSHIP
These are not simply words; they are the values which guide all we do.

Six Pillars of Our Foundation

List of 6 items.

  • Faith Guides

    As a Catholic High School, Bishop Hartley is committed to enriching our students with the fullness of our Catholic traditions through intellectual growth, personal and community prayer, the celebration of the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, Adoration, yearly retreats, and service.
  • Preparation Empowers

    We prepare our students for the future by teaching them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, technology-literate individuals, and faithful citizens. 100 percent of our students are accepted into colleges with our most recent graduating class earning $33.26 million dollars in academic and merit-based scholarships.
  • Community Unites

    We honor the collaborative effort among family, church, and school to foster a loving, safe, and Christian environment for our students. Bishop Hartley is a place for them to learn, discover their gifts, and serve their community as well as the world around them. With enrollment surpassing 700, we are big enough to offer a wide variety of classes, yet small enough that we do not lose familiarity with students and families.
  • Service Inspires

    The Gospel commands us to love our neighbor and at Bishop Hartley, our students put their beliefs into action, serving the lonely, hungry, homeless, sick, and mentally ill. Each year, through our House System, students conduct service projects designed to have a true, measurable impact on improving the lives of others.
  • Spirit Ignites

    Every Bishop Hartley student is involved in at least one extracurricular activity through clubs, athletics, and service. In this active, engaged environment, students discover the shared values that bind them together.
  • Leadership Matters

    Leadership is a key ingredient in the development of students’ responsibility and awareness of the impact they can have as they become young adults. Through the classroom, the House System, sports, and clubs, students will gain valuable tools that will help empower them to become better leaders and mentors.
