Academic Excellence

At Bishop Hartley High School, we don’t just meet the standard—we exceed it. Every school year, in every classroom and every activity, we ask students, faculty and staff to push themselves and strive for excellence. Quite simply, we prepare students to fit-in and stand-out.

Every year Hartley students continue to find heights unbounded. Last year’s graduating class collectively earned an impressive $16.8 million in scholarships to post-secondary institutions. We are proud of that number, but the real source of pride is our students and the dedication, discipline, and determination it takes to turn dreams into reality.

Bishop Hartley’s reputation for academic excellence helps us attract top universities to our school. On our campus, we annually host as many as 80 college visits which provide the opportunity for university admission staff to visit Hartley’s classrooms and meet with students individually and in small groups.

Our students repeatedly earn top scholarships and academic honors such as the Joyce Scholarship and appointments to the U.S. military academies.
