Mission & Beliefs


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

Six Pillars of our Foundation
At Bishop Hartley, 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 based on the values which guide all we do.


As a Roman 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 the Eucharist and Reconciliation, yearly retreats and service.


We prepare our students for the future by teaching them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and technologically literate individuals. Each year, 99 percent of our students go on to two- or four-year colleges with our most recent graduating class receiving $33.26 million in academic and merit-based scholarships.


We honor the collaborative effort among family, church, and school to foster a loving, safe, and Christian environment for our students where they can learn, discover their gifts, and serve their community within the walls of Bishop Hartley as well as the world around them. With enrollment just over 700, we are big enough to offer a wide variety of classes and financial stability, yet small enough that we do not lose familiarity with students and families.




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 House conducts a year-long service project designed to have a true, measurable impact on improving the lives of others.

Every one of our students is involved in at least one extracurricular activity through clubs, athletics, and service. In our environment, students discover the shared values that bind them together.

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