Give Now

I am thrilled to continue to serve as principal of Cardinal Ritter High School for so many reasons. When I first walked through the doors nearly eight years ago, I knew this place was special. Today after all these years, I continue to feel this way, but I now know what makes ours such an amazing community.  The families who choose to send their kids here are committed to our Catholic identity and work with our staff to help their children succeed.  They want their children to not only receive a rigorous, college-preparatory education but one that encourages the students to grow in their spirituality.  In addition, our teachers deliver meaningful, engaging lessons, and genuinely care about the whole child while our students consistently impress me with their accomplishments, perseverance, and kindness towards others.

As principal, I look forward to continuing the mission of our school – to ensure that our Catholic identity is at the heart of all that we do at Cardinal Ritter High School.  Working with our staff, I will continue to ensure that all students receive an excellent education that prepares them to be life-long learners and Christ-like stewards of our community and beyond.

We hope that you will take some time to learn more about the attributes that make our school community great.  Our website is updated with weekly newsletters, calendars, staff information, sports schedules, and much more, to serve as a helpful resource for any information you might need.  To truly witness the dynamic community here at Cardinal Ritter High School, come and see first-hand the wonderful experiences that continue to make this place special and an excellent choice for your children’s education.  

In Christ’s Peace,
