Bishop Kearney turns 50
Bishop Kearney High School celebrates its golden anniversarythis year as the all-girls Catholic institution turns 50.
The school opened its doors in the fall of 1961 under theleadership of Sister Letitia Maria and the Sisters of Saint Joseph.Since then, over 13,000 young women have graduated to becomejournalists, judges, doctors and dentists.
We believe that we empower women who will shape the future,said current principal Sister Thomasine Stagnitta. When you belongto the Kearney family, you are not only here for an education butfor sociability and friendships. Our hospitality and friendlinessmakes us different from other schools.
As soon as students walk through the door as freshmen, theyimmediately are prepared for college. Bishop Kearney offers notonly an advanced academic curriculum – students are allowed to takeas many AP courses as they wish – but are required to do 90 hoursof community service before they graduate.
